Finance Minister to present mid-year budget review today

The Finance Minister Ken Ofori Atta is scheduled to present the mid-year budget review statement and economic Policy to Parliament today (Monday) July 31, 2017.

The presentation is a constitutional requirement for the finance minister to make known the state of the economy before the beginning of the second half of the year.

The 2017 Budget was presented to Parliament by the Minister on March 2, 2017, which he described as the ‘Asempa Budget’.

The Majority Members of Parliament (MPs) defended the budget, but the Minority MPs heavily criticised it for ignoring essential sectors.
