President John Mahama has said  that the economy will grow above five percent by the end of 2016 and inflation reduced to single digit due to prudent management.

Mahama was speaking on Friday at the 15 Edition of the Ghana Club 100 awards ceremony organized by the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre.

"Indeed growth in the first quarter of this year increased to 4.9% and growth is expected at the end of this year to exceed the five percent mark. And it is our hope that we will progress to about eight percent by the end of next year," Mahama said on Friday.

"Inflation has begun to fall and it is our expectation that we will end this year about 14% and achieve single digit inflation next year."

“We’ll come out of the IMF programme with inflation at single digit, a deficit of GDP [Gross Domestic Product] below 3 percent and debt to GDP [ratio] below 60 percent, a stable currency and significantly lower interest rate," he said.
