Budget highlights 2017

The much anticipated first budget statement of the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo led government was finally presented to Parliament on 2 March 2017 under the theme “Sowing the seeds for growth and jobs”. The budget is anchored to the country’s medium term vision and priorities of Government, incorporates programmes initiated under the Ghana Shared Growth and Development Agenda II (“GSGDA II”), and is informed by the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (“SDGs”), and the African Union’s Agenda 2063. It is also set within the context of the IMF’s three-year Extended Credit Facility (“ECF”) programme with Ghana.

Key policy objectives targeted in the medium-term include: a business friendly and industrialised economy that creates jobs; a modernised agricultural sector that emphasises value addition and improved efficiency; countrywide integrated infrastructure, and enhanced human capital.
