IMF team in Ghana to assess and gather data on the economy

A team of International Monetary Fund (IMF) officials is in town to assess the Ghanaian economy.

The review which is under its Article 4 program would see the Fund gather data to help them with its analyses and projections on Ghana. Many would be looking forward to the team's interim report, when it concludes its work next week.

This is coming at the time when some international organizations and banks have projected that Ghana would end the year not meeting most of the Macro-economic targets as well as difficult times ahead for the country.

The team has already engaged officials of the Finance Ministry, Statistical Service, Civil Society Groups and the Bank of Ghana.
