This is due to the government's strategies to recover from the adverse effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

He admitted that the world is going through difficult times and Ghana is no exception adding that no country in the world has escaped the ravages of COVID-19.

"In Ghana, the recovery programme we have is very credible and that is what is going to give us the opportunity to come out of this period a stronger economy, and it is that future we are looking at. The digital economy is emerging as the biggest economy in the country and for a long period, it has not had any tax at all, so it is important that it also comes into the net,' he stated.
