Ghana to trim deficit to 9 pct, eyes 8 pct growth in 2013- source

ACCRA, March 5 (Reuters) - Ghana’s 2013 budget aims to trim the fiscal deficit to 9 percent, from just over 12 percent in 2012, by enhancing tax revenues and controlling expenditures, a source with knowledge of the document said on Tuesday.

The government spending plan assumes an economic growth rate of 8 percent in the oil, cocoa and gold producing nation and targets an inflation rate of 9 percent. Ghana’s finance minister will present the budget to parliament later on Tuesday.
