“Ghana as you probably know, requested a program from the IMF. We had an IMF staff team in Accra in July  to begin initial discussions with the Ghanaian authorities. And we characterized that mission as constructive, kickstarted the process, and laid the groundwork for engagement, which now continues.”
“Our Mission Chief for the IMF also recently visited Accra, again, to meet with key counterparts. And we’re hopeful of another visit in the coming weeks. I don’t have a date for you, but [it will surely be] in the coming weeks,” added.
The Managing Director of the IMF, Kristalina Georgieva earlier in the month noted that a deal between Ghana and the IMF should be reached and finalized before the end of the year.
Ghana is before the IMF to help the country navigate the economic crisis it finds itself in, which was heightened by the coronavirus pandemic and the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine.
Ghana is seeking a $3 billion package from the fund.
