    Desperate Ofori-Atta Leaves For China To Beg

    Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta, has left Accra for China to have negotiations on debt restructuring with officials of that country. 

    Sources say the Finance Minister left over the weekend via Addis Ababa where he is attending the UNECA High-Level Ministers meeting on the Global Financial Architecture.

    After that meeting, Mr. Ofori-Atta, is expected to head to China, possibly on March 22, 2023.

    The Minister who is leading the government delegation is expected to continue bilateral talks with China as well as seek financial assurances for Ghana’s programme with the International Monetray Fund. 

    The trip was postponed to the end of March because it coincided with the National People’s Congress of China meeting in early March 2023. 

    The Minister of Finance has already held meetings with officials of Exim Bank China in Ghana, all in the line of re-profiling the country’ debt to China.
