Mr. Ofori-Atta previously stated that the administration had turned the corner in terms of economic issues when it successfully concluded the first review of the three-year, three-billion-dollar International Monetary Fund External Credit Facility (IMF-ECF) project.
“We turned the corner when we completed the IMF first review,” he told Parliament while presenting the 2024 budget statement on Wednesday, November 15.
He further assured that the government was poised to “maintain stability and keep growing. and ensure increased growth, currency stability”
“We turned the corner when inflation started declining from 54 1 in December to 35.2 in October 2023, he added.
“The recovery is indeed real and is here to stay,” he further assured.
Mr. Ofori-Atta went on to say that the rapid implementation of robust fiscal and monetary policy measures since last year, as well as in the first half of 2023 largely accounts for the continued economic recovery that is being experienced.
“So far, growth in 2023 has been more resilient than expected, inflation has declined in line with the fundamentals, the fiscal and external balances have improved, and the exchange rate has stabilised,” he said.
