Finance Minister presents mid-year budget review

Thursday, 19 July 2018 00:00

The Minister of Finance Ken Ofori Attah is in Parliament to present a mid-year review of the 2018 budget.

For just one reason-taxes and how to meet revenue target- the mid-year review presentation has become a subject of great expectation, anxiety laced with the usual partisan political debates.

Minority claims of a VAT increase to be announced by the Minister have been deflated but the talk on the taxes is still high on the agenda.

As minority and majority MPs welcome the Minister to the floor of Parliament, with the usual chants of Yeee ye!!! Nooo No!!! and a possible placards exhibition, Myjoyonline.com will give updates of the figures, drama, the news and the analysis as presented by the Minister and the political economists.


The Finance Minister Ken Ofori Atta, in his usual white, appears on the floor with a bow; he is led by the head of the economic management team, and Vice President Dr Mahama Bawumia who is in a dark attire.

After a number of loan agreements were laid on the floor and forwarded to the Finance Committee of Parliament, the Finance Minister steps up to present the budget.
