The Minister for Information, Dr. Mustapha Hamid is optimistic of a brighter future as the economy reacts positively to government policies and initiatives.
Dr. Hamid said the records clearly show that the economy is getting stronger, despite government inheriting a wobbling situation from the previous Mahama administration.
In a post on his facebook to mark the full 12-month cycle of the first budget of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and to begin the second quarter of 2018, Dr. Hamid catalogued a litany of progress and achievements on the economic front.
In his 30-point statement, the Minister emphasised the economy is on a sound footing because it has remained stabilised not to mention the constant decline in inflation and interest rates.
“We are thankful for our increased economic growth. Ghana was the fastest growing economy in the world in 2017.
“We are thankful for the fiscal discipline in the management of our public finances which resulted in the government attaining its budget deficit target. The first time since 2006,” Dr. Hamid stated.
He added: “Most importantly, we are thankful for the leadership and vision of the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. Our economy under his leadership is only going to get stronger.”
Dr. Hamid has, however, acknowledged Ghana still has “some way to go” and has since rallied Ghanaians to support the government to succeed so everyone will have “a lot to be thankful for” in 2018.
