Vice President Kwesi Amissah-Arthur has stated that the various economic strategies being implemented by the government over the years are yielding the required results.

As a result, he believes, the country will soon emerge out of the economic woods.

Ghana is currently in a three year bailout programme with the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

Addressing Muslims at this year’s Eid ul Fitr at the Black Star Square in Accra Saturday, Mr Amissah-Arthur said government is determined to ensure better living conditions for Ghanaians.

“The sacrifices, patience and prayers are producing the expected results,”  he stated.

"This year we are experiencing an improvement in economic circumstances, we are therefore confident that the programmes and projects and the measures we are implementing will continue to yield good results.

“Government is concerned about the long-term viability of our economy and its ability to provide assured livelihoods for our citizens," he stated.
