The Minister of Finance, Dr. Mohammed Amin Adam, has stated that Ghana’s economy is continually showing signs of recovery after the successful implementation of the debt restructuring programme.

This comes after Ghana secured the IMF Board’s approval of the second review of the $3 billion programme, allowing for the immediate release of $360 million to Ghana and bringing the total disbursements to $1.56 billion.

Speaking at a joint press conference with the IMF on July 1, the Finance Minister shared promising economic indicators that signal a robust recovery.

According to him, the 2024 GDP growth rate of 4.7% is the highest since Q4 of 2020.

“The economy continues to show strong signs of recovery, particularly in Quarter 1 of 2024; the results were remarkable. Overall real GDP growth for Q1 2024 was 4.7%, the highest since Q1 2022.

“This growth performance is better than the 3.1% growth recorded in the same period in 2023. Industry grew the most at 6.8%, followed by agriculture at 4.1% and services at 3.3%.

“The 2024 GDP growth rate is the highest since Q4 of 2020. The growth in industry is particularly interesting; in the past, growth came largely from services and, to some extent, agriculture.

“The industry did not perform well. So, if we are beginning to see the industry performing well, it tells us that the real recovery is here.

“Manufacturing is going to grow continuously, and that will mean more jobs being created for the Ghanaian people, more wealth being created for the Ghanaian people, and therefore we have turned the corner, as we have said over and over,” he stated.
