Ghana’s Economy Still Robust – Adu Boahen

Mr Charles Adu, the Minister of State at the Ministry of Finance gave assurance at the Graphic Business/Stanbic Bank Breakfast Meeting in Accra Tuesday.

He said Ghana’s economic fundamentals were well robust today as they were three-to-four months ago.

Mr Charles Adu further, asked investors selling off Ghana’s bonds in the international market to rethink their action as the sentiments driving those moves did not reflect the true state of the economy.

He said while the government was concerned about the “heightened sell-off” of Ghana’s bonds, it was confident that the situation would normalise in the coming days as bond holders get to appreciate the realities in the economy.

“I’m sure you all notice the global sell-off in our Eurobonds in the international stock market. There’s been a general sell-off but I am sure those of Ghana have been quite pronounced.”

“It is a situation that is of concern,” he said at the event meant to proffer solutions to the changes facing the economy ahead of rhe presentation of the 2022 Budget.

“I want to assure the audience that nothing fundamentally has changed; were still on track to meet our deficit, we are still on track to meet our revenue target for the year.

We believe that the market’s reaction is not based on the fundamentals, which are still as robust as they were three-to-four months ago,” Mr Boahen said.
