The month of June was a particularly lively one for IMANI. Last month saw IMANI CPE host two public forums — both on key topics of public interest.
- Firstly, on the 20th of June, 2019 one of IMANI’s non-resident fellows, Professor Bokpin held a lecture on Ghana’s Debt Sustainability after the IMF Program at the Coconut Grove Regency Hotel – Accra.
