The Executive Secretary of the Importers and Exporters Association of Ghana, Mr. Sampson Asaki Awingobit, says the Finance Minister’s 2024 ‘Nkunim’ budget statement and economic policy did not meet his expectations.
According to him, the minister had failed to take into consideration any of the requests and suggestions his association had made.
He said his association had called for the removal of certain taxes and levies, including the COVID-19 levy and the 2% import special levy, but none had been met.
He said that the budget as it is will not engender any growth in the private sector and will not contribute significantly to the alleviation of the ordinary Ghanaian’s hardship.
The 2024 budget was referred to as a “Nkoguo” budget by Mr. Sampson Asaki instead of a “Nkunim” budget.
