On Monday, the 15th of November, 2021 the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta will present the budget for the 2022 fiscal year to parliament. Many are the expectations of most Ghanaians and even foreigners and investors.

GBC News solicited the views of some experts and their expectations of the budget to be presented.

A Governance Expert, Frederick Agyarko Oduro said more should be done next year on the provision of potable water and construction of roads.

”Government should also concentrate on paying the arrears of Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies, (MMDAs), and take a look at fuel prices”.

Mr. Agyarko said Parliament should be unanimous on critical areas of the economy in 2022 for massive development.

A Security Analyst, Adib Saani, said there is the need to implement the national security strategy.

”Investment in human development, access to quality health care, potable water and all the basic necessities of life will enhance general security”, he posited.

Mr. Saani said the right intelligence gathering and retraining of personnel in the Security Agencies will go a long way in fighting crime.
