The stakeholder meeting is themed, “Dissecting Ghana’s Ailing Economy And The Obnoxious E-Levy Policy”.
The NDC’s meeting which according to the party will be attended by the media and other relevant stakeholders will raise issues about the controversial Electronic Transactions Levy, better known as the E-levy.
The program is being organised under the auspices of the National Communications Bureau, the statement said.
The E-levy still hangs un-passed by the parliament following different opinions the minority and majority caucuses hold on the policy the Akufo-Addo led government intends to implement as a means of generating adequate revenue to develop the country.
The fate of the E-levy will be determined after the parliament recommences on January 25.
