There is a saying that, a journey with a thousand miles begins with a step. So our journey to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), also has to begin from somewhere and that will be Wednesday July 6, 2022.
The official team will arrive in the country on Wednesday and as we were informed by the Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah on Friday July 1st, the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta will be leading the negotiations.
In addition to Mr Ofori-Atta will be the Economic Management team and the presidency.
In a news chanced on at citinewsroom, the IMF team will consist of senior officials from the Fund as well as local staff based here in Ghana.
Analysts suggest that it would take at least three months for a programme to be agreed upon between the parties.
But the question is is it going to be the same team who could not manage the country's finances who are going for the negotiation?
