Playback: Bawumia's presentation at maiden Townhall Meeting in Kumasi

The Vice President says the combination of prudent macro and microeconomic policies and programmes implemented by government over the last three years has strengthened the economy.

Dr Mahamudu Bawumia said the change in the country’s fortunes he said has been acknowledged by the international bodies.

He was addressing participants at the ongoing Government Townhall and Results Fair in the Ashanti regional capital of Kumasi on Tuesday.

Using a combination of graphs, tables and text, Vice President Bawumia provided evidence to buttress his claim that the Akufo-Addo administration had largely delivered on its manifesto promises, especially on the economy.

“The data shows that Ghana’s macroeconomic fundamentals are strong. Indeed, the strength of Ghana’s fundamentals was confirmed recently by Moody’s Ratings which changed Ghana’s sovereign ratings from B3 with a stable outlook to B3 with a positive outlook. This is unprecedented for an election year,” Vice President Bawumia pointed out.
