The government’s Budget Statement and Economic Policy for the year 2022 is expected to be presented in parliament today, Wednesday, November 17, 2021, by the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta.
This will be the sixth budget of the Akufo-Addo administration, in accordance with Article 179 of the 1992 constitution.
Many await the presentation of the 2022 budget with bated breath.
Over the past few weeks, the business community and other stakeholders have presented their views on what they expect the budget to focus on.
While motorists are expecting the withdrawal of some petroleum taxes to ease the constant increment of fuel prices, traders among others are also calling on the government to announce proper strategies to tackle unemployment in the country.
There are already several demands on things the government must do, including demands from aggrieved Menzgold customers for a relief package for them in the budget.
