The 2022 Budget Statement and Economic Policy of the government will be presented before Parliament today on November 17, 2021.
Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta is expected to present the Budget Statement to Parliament on behalf of the President by 10am Wednesday.
It had previously been scheduled for November 15, 2021, however the Second Deputy Speaker, Mr Andrew Asiamah Amoako, (Ind., Fomena) announced the date reversal on Wednesday and said the House will have other important events to attend to on November 15.
The Budget is expected to focus on post COVID-19 pandemic recovery.
The budget would also dwell on “creating a climate-friendly entrepreneurial state to address unemployment and import substitution,” The Finance Ministry said in a statement on Monday.
