The Finance Minister, on behalf of government, has presented the 2021 Mid-year budget review to Parliament.

This is in line with Section 28 of the Public Financial Management Act, 2016 (Act 921), as it mandates the Ministry to undertake the presentation not later the July 31, of each financial year.

It is expected that the review will focus on revenue, expenditure, and financing performance for the first half of the year and provide an overview of the implementation of the 2021 Budget.

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.
