Netherlands Embassy in Accra Ghana
September 16, 2014 Please note, the consular section will be closed to the public for all its services on Tuesday 14 October and Wednesday 15 October 2014 and also on Thursday 6 November and Friday 7 November 2014 because of a training program. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause.
September 16, 2014 Madam President, I will shortly present the budget for 2015. A budget that can best be described as ‘prudent’. Prudent in its additional expenditure. Prudent in the burden it places on individuals and businesses. And prudent in its specific forecasts about the future. Prudence is essential given the current international uncertainties, especially in view of their potential impact on our fragile economic recovery. The government is therefore seeking a balance between restoring purchasing power, reducing financial risks and increasing expenditure, as it must in the light of international tensions.
