Summary:

Ghana’s macroeconomic performance has been mixed, as over the years recurrent policy slippages have amplified the impact of external and domestic shocks, created persistent imbalances, and contributed to high inflation, exchange rate volatility, and unfavorable debt dynamics. The new government thus faces significant challenges, including a large fiscal slippage that occurred in 2016. Addressing these challenges calls for an ambitious adjustment and reform agenda.
