Ken Ofori-Atta is the Minister of Finance

Finance Minister Ken Ofori Attah has revealed that the 2018 budget will prioritize health and education.

According to him,   government is resolute about ensuring that the development of the human capital is key for national development.

The Finance Minister will be in Parliament on November 15 to present the 2018 budget.

Ahead of that there are high hopes on what the fundamentals of the budget will be, due to the many abolishment and tax cuts that were allowed in the previous budget which led to it being christened Asempa budget.

Speaking at the launch of a 4 week long campaign to conscientize businesses on the payment of tax, the minister said health and education will be eminent in the 2018 budget.

“Health and education are issues that we will not compromise in the budget. We believe that the human capital should be developed and that is why we do what we do”.

He adds that government will ensure that lapses in revenue generation are closed to ensure enough revenue  to the state to execute the various projects

“Our position as a government is to ensure that, we collect the revenue and use it for the needed social interventions. We should be able to link our institutions to help us mobilize our resources.
