The Akufo-Addo-led government has managed to fix the economic challenges that were bedeviling the country, Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta has said.

According to him, the policies and programmes put in place by the government have started yielding results to bring relief to Ghanaians.

“In March when I presented the ‘Asempa’ budget, I indicated to this House our commitment to take deliberate strategic steps and the required discipline to fix the economy. We were expected to do little more than just borrow more to incur more debt.

“Thankfully President Akufo-Addo came into office with a positive mindset and inspired all of us to see the invisible, feel the intangible and achieve the impossible.

“I am happy to note that we have turned the economy around and our policies are yielding results and restoring hope and bringing relief to Ghanaians,” Mr Ofori-Atta told Parliament when delivering the 2018 budget statement on Wednesday, 15 November.
