IMF says agrees three-year deal with Ghana worth around $930 million

ACCRA (Reuters) - The International Monetary Fund agreed a three-year concessional facility with Ghana worth around $930 million (600 million pounds) and is confident the deal can restore its fiscal stability, Africa Department division chief Joel Toujas-Bernate said on Thursday.

Ghana's economy grew at around 8 percent for years on its exports of gold, cocoa and oil but the country faces serious macro-economic problems and the Fund forecast growth under the deal at 3.5 percent in 2015, rising to 5.0-6.0 percent in 2017.
