Ofori-Atta mentions ready policies after economic recovery; sees 2023 as ‘comeback’ year

Minister of Finance Kenneth Nana Yaw Kuntunkunuku Ofori-Atta has hinted at some planned programmes by government if the country recovers from the current economic downturn.

He said the programmes will ensure a robust economy for the future.

“The ensuing years will focus on entrepreneurial and export-driven economy as we grow the economy to protect and create jobs, tackle inflation and strengthen our economy,” he stated in a nationwide broadcast on Monday, December 19.

He added that “importation of food should soon be a thing of the past”.

Ghana’s economic crisis has reached unsustainable levels with the country going to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for bailout.

A staff-level agreement (SLA) has been reached for a $3-billion extended credit facility (ECF).

Besides, the Cedi has made a strong appreciation against the US Dollar.

These gains, the Finance Minister insisted, have been made as a result of strategic measures taken by the government.

“We cannot afford to lose this essence of forward momentum for our economy as we navigate towards stability, predictability and growth.
