The decision comes after the West African country reached a deal to restructure $5.4 billion of loans with its official creditors, a milestone in Ghana’s quest for debt relief as it charts its way out of the worst economic crisis in a generation.

The financing is the first in a series of three operations of $300 million each and part of a broad World Bank engagement for crisis response and resilience in Ghana, the World Bank statement said.

Ghana received a disbursement of about $600 million under its $3 billion bailout programme from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) last week.
