2nd review of Ghana’s $3bn IMF programme set to take place April 2 to 12


The Minister of Finance, Dr. Mohammed Amin Adam has announced that the second review of the three-year, $3 billion IMF-supported Post-COVID-19 Programme for Economic Growth (PC-PEG) is set to take place from April 2 to 12, 2024.

This according to him follows the successful completion of the first review on January 19, 2024.

The Finance Minister explained that the upcoming review will assess Ghana’s performance against the programme’s objectives, which include a range of Quantitative Performance Criteria and Structural Benchmarks.

“The 2nd Review of the 3-year, $3bn IMF Supported Post Covid-19 Programme for Economic Growth (PC-PEG) to be conducted by the IMF Staff has been scheduled for 2nd – 12th April 2024, following the successful completion of the 1st Review of the Programme on 19th Jan 2024,” the ministry stated.

He hinted that the approval of the second review will trigger the release of the third tranche of the $360m external credit facility.

“The test date for the 2nd Review is Dec 2023. The approval of the 2nd Review by the IMF Executive Board, possibly in June 2024, will trigger the release of the 3rd tranche of $360m, bringing the total disbursements so far under the programme to $1.56 billion. The 2nd Review will be the first of the two semi-annual reviews programmed for 2024. The 3rd Review has been programmed for Nov 2024.

The Ministry of Finance is working with the BoG in preparation for the IMF 2nd Review Mission. Preliminary assessment undertaken by MoF and BoG shows that we are on course to meet most of the targets under the Programme,” the minister stated.
