The presentation will further highlight the state of the implementation of Ghana CARES “Obaatanpa” Programme that “seeks to revitalise and transform the economy to pre Covid-19 times.”
Also, it will provide the economic and fiscal performance of the economy for the first half of the year and provide an update on strategies by the government to create employment for Ghanaians in general and the youth in particular.
It will further touch on the assurance of the government on securing Covid-19 vaccines for vaccination and effective domestic revenue mobilisation initiatives.
