The Ghana Shared Growth and Development Agenda (GSGDA II), 2014 - 2017 will continue to be the broad framework for the preparation of the 2017 - 2019 Budget.
However given that the GSGDA officially ends in 2017, estimates for 2018 and 2019 financial years will be indicative and should cover activities that cannot be implemented within the GSGDA II period and have to be rolled over.
With 2016 being an election year MDAs will be required to prepare a draft Budget Statement and Economic Policy. It is expected that estimates "in advance of appropriation" will be laid before Parliament by the end of November, 2016.
The full Budget Statement and Estimates will be presented by the first quarter of 2017.
