Finance Minister Ken Ofori Atta is expected to present the Mid-Year Review of the Budget Statement and Economic Policy of government and the Supplementary Estimate for the 2021 Financial Year on July 29.

Before the presentation, he is expected to answer questions from North Tongu MP Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa on the cost of President Akufo-Addo’s trip to France, Belgium and South Africa on a chartered private jet next week. These were contained in the Business Statement for the ensuing week.

Mr. Ofori-Atta is expected to answer questions bothering on the President’s trip before the mid-year budget review presentation.

There is however a counter-question standing in the name of NPP MP for Dormaa East, Paul Apreku Twum-Barimah on the cost of air travel of President Mahama on chartered flights between the period 2013 to 2016 as a president.

The Minister will also answer a question from Builsa South MP and Deputy Ranking Member for the Committee on Education Dr. Clement Apaak on whether government took loans to finance the implementation of the Free Senior High School policy.
