Ghana 2018

Ghana's new president, Nana Akufo-Addo, has promised to cut waste across the public sector and tackle the country's budget deficit. The government hopes to bring the fiscal deficit to 6.3% of GDP by the end of the year, a target many analysis expect will be met. The country is currently considered at high risk for debt distress, and any additional, unforeseen economic roadblocks could result in a significantly negative impact on debts.
