The President of Ghana  Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has expressed optimism that the country will succeed with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) programme.

He stated that the IMF intervention is for repairs of the nation’s finances in the short term.

In the long term, he said, the country will continue to work on structural changes as part of the goal to create the Ghana beyond aid, that is building a resilience, robust Ghanaian economy.

Speaking at the seat of government on Friday July 8 while swearing into office New Ambassadors and High commissioners, Mr Akufo-Addo said “Currently, we have decided to seek the collaboration with the International Monetary Fund to repair, in the short run, our finances which have taken a severe hit in very recent times while we continue to work on the medium to long term structural changes that are our heart of our goal to create the Ghana beyond aide, that is building a resilient, robust Ghanaian economy.

“I am confident that with determination, hard work, unity and the proverbial Ghanaian sense of enterprise we will succeed, we will make it and indeed this too shall pass.

“What these trends of event have taught all of us is that, we also have to strengthen and deepen our ties of cooperation and bonds of friendship with each other.

“No country will be able to do it alone. We either succeed together or we perish together and that is where your work as ambassadors and High Commissioners will be needed the most.”
