Ghana postponed this week’s mid-term budget review until initial meetings with the International Monetary Fund for an economic program have been completed, according to people familiar with the plan. 

Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta was scheduled to give an update on the West African nation’s first-half revenue and expenditure targets on Wednesday. The mid-year budget is likely to be tabled later this month, said the people who declined to be identified because they’re not authorized to speak to the media.
