President Akufo-Addo has hosted students from Harvard Business School on a study tour at the Jubilee House in Accra.

He said the agreement with the IMF will put the country in a better position to undertake initiatives, enable the country to repair its public finances, and boost public confidence in the economy.

Addressing the students, President Akufo-Addo who discussed various issues on the economy said, “Ghana is also exploring innovative ways to maximise benefits of hydrocarbons from the oil fields.”

President Nana Akufo-Addo said Ghana, like many other nations, has felt the brunt of the global economic crisis, stressing that the agreement with the IMF, which will see Ghana receive a $3 billion bailout, will help overcome the country’s economic crisis.

He indicated that talks with the IMF are going well and the government is working towards wrapping up a deal by the end of January or mid-February.

A Senior Lecturer of Business Administration at the Harvard Business School, Prof. Hakeem Belo-Osagie said the visit to the seat of the government is part of an Africa field course which enables students to get first-hand information on Africa and the impact the international community has had on them.
