“The obstacles we confront are intimidating, but we must not lose sight of what makes Ghanaians unique: their tenacity, entrepreneurship, faith, courage, solidarity, and hope. I thus ask that each of us contribute in a positive way to putting our country back on track.

“Ours is a nation with genuine prospects; challenges notwithstanding, Ghana will rise again. My confidence is based on the fact that much has already been accomplished, particularly during the Fourth Republic, and our policy, as outlined in this budget to reset the economy, if supported, will ensure that, in fact, we have not wasted the current global crisis but used it to strengthen our economy and further the progress and prosperity of our people.

Among other things, Mr. Ofori-Atta announced a 2.5 percent rise in the VAT rate to directly fund Ghana’s road and digitalization agenda.
