It also alleged that the Adam Smith and John Maynard Keynes of the NDC was in wonderland while Ken Ofori-Atta was busily reading the 2020 budgetary statement as well as other MPS.

Minister for Finance, Ken Ofori-Atta, presented the 2020 Budget Statement and Economic Policy of government to Parliament on November 13, 2019.

2020’s budget outlines measures to raise more revenue to finance infrastructural and developmental projects.

The country’s total revenues for the first half of 2019 underperformed by 15 percent, and financial experts say this would require the government to announce innovative measures to raise more revenues next year.

The 2020 Budget is focusing on tax reforms that will enhance private sector growth which will, in turn, create more jobs for Ghanaians.
