Following the approval of the economic support programme for Ghana by the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the Central Bank Act is expected to witness some amendments as part of efforts to boost independence and address fiscal dominance.

This was contained in a country report issued by the Fund on May 17, 2023.


The amendments to the Bank of Ghana Act will feature a stricter limit for monetary financing, mechanisms to monitor and enforce compliance, and offer clear definition of emergency situations under which the limit can be temporarily lifted.

Before Ghana secured approval from the IMF Executive Board for a $3 billion bailout, the Bank of Ghana and Ministry of Finance, as part of prior actions, signed memorandum of understanding (MoU) to end monetary financing during the programme.


Under the new programme, there is an ongoing updated Safeguards Assessment which is aimed at proving additional support for designing changes to the BoG Act and pending some legislative amendment.


The Act, when revised, will further review the Central Bank’s Domestic Gold Purchase and Gold-for-Oil programmes amid associated risks for the Bank of Ghana.
