The team from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) will be meeting the Finance Committee of Parliament today, Tuesday July 12.
The meeting is scheduled to take place at the Committee Room 7W (West Wing 7th Floor , Job 600) at 4PM.
The IMF staff team is being led by Carlo Sdralevich, mission chief for Ghana.
Mr. Sdralevich in a statement earlier said on the engagement with Government officials that “On the basis of a request from the Ghanaian authorities, an IMF staff team will in the coming days kick-start discussions on a possible program to support Ghana’s homegrown economic policies. We are at an early stage in the process, given that detailed discussions are yet to take place.”
“The IMF stands ready to assist Ghana to restore macroeconomic stability, safeguard debt sustainability, and promote inclusive and sustainable growth, and address the impact of the war in Ukraine and the lingering pandemic.”
“We are looking forward to our engagement with the authorities in Accra,” the Fund said.
The Government of Ghana on Friday July 1 announced that it was seeking support from the IMF.
This followed a telephone conversation between the President and the IMF Managing Director, Miss Kristalina Georgieva, conveying Ghana’s decision to engage with the Fund, a statement by the Ministry of Information said.
