Members of Parliament are debating the 2022 Budget Statement and Economic Policy.

The budget dubbed ‘Agyenkwa’ was read by the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta on November 17, 2021. It proposed several policies aimed at raising revenue for the country and boosting the economy.

During the budget presentation, the Minister announced the introduction of new policies including the scrapping of road toll and the introduction of the ‘YouStart’ programme aimed at bridging the unemployment gap.

Also, the Minister announced the introduction of an Electronic transaction levy (e-Levy) on electronic transactions, including mobile money and banking transactions.

The Minority in Parliament are opposing this levy, insisting that it will kill the digitisation agenda.
