The Finance Ministry has described the yet-to-be-read 2024 budget statement as a crucial document to be presented by the Minister.

The Ministry said the budget comes on the back of the successful first review of the 3-year programme with the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

The sector Minister Ken Ofori-Atta is expected to present the statement on Wednesday, November 15.

A statement issued by the Ministry on Tuesday, November 14 said “The budget is crucial because it is developed to support the implementation of the IMF-backed post-COVID-19 programme of economic growth.

“It comes just after the successful first review of the three-year US43 billion IMF-ECF programme.

“It will also heighten among others, the performance of the economy, efforts to boost the productive capacity of the economy through the new growth strategy, fiscal measures, and debt management strategies to deepen stability and promote growth.”
