Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta, says Ghana should expect an International Monetary Fund (IMF) Board approval for a programme by the close of May 2023.

Addressing Eurobondholders at an Investors Presentation Forum by the Republic of Ghana, Mr. Ofori-Atta called on external creditors to support Ghana’s quest in securing the programme.
“We do at this time expect an IMF board approval in May  and contemplates a rapid negotiation of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with our creditors. We have made significant efforts in all front. We hope we could reach an agreement in principle with you our Eurobond holders quickly”.
“We understand this is a challenging time for all of you to commit and offer a financial support to all of you. But please be assured we are fully committed with you and your advisors to ensure equitable solution”, he said.
Mr. Ofori-Atta said an access to the international capital market is key on the agenda of government to restore macroeconomic stability.
He maintained that government is committed to a fair debt treatment with its commercial creditors.
“Government intends to deepen relationship with its external creditors. We reaffirm our commitment to work with our private and commercial creditors in all of our engagement”, he added
