I wish to welcome you our distinguished guests to Ghana. Ghana is a beacon of democracy, an interactive investment destination, and a country with a welcoming and genuinely hospitable environment. As we say in one of our local dialects “Akwaaba”, which means “welcome”.
It is a distinct honor to be invited to give an open remarks and it is also a privilege for Ghana to be hosting the IMF’s International Seminar for Tax Policy and Administration for its Topical Trust Fund (TPA-TTF) beneficiary countries. Distinguished Ladies and gentlemen, permit me to thank the organizers , the Fiscal Affairs Department of the IMF for creating the platform for continuous dialogue in this important area of fiscal management.
