The IMF staff team in Ghana from December 1-13 will be led by Stéphane Roudet, mission chief for Ghana, and will continue to discuss with government officials the economic growth post-COVID program and associated policy and reforms that the IMF might support. IMF staff will also engage with other stakeholders during the visit.
The IMF has held productive discussions with the government over the last few months and looks forward to working with them in Accra, Roudet said. We wish to make further progress toward an agreement on policies and reforms that we might support.
