The Bank of Ghana (BoG) successfully raised GHS 719 million through its recent 56-day bill auction, at a notable interest rate of 28.9 percent.

This auction, characterized by undisclosed bid values and an unspecified target, reflects the central bank’s strategic focus on managing liquidity within the banking sector.

The 28.9 percent interest rate set by the BoG underscores its current economic strategy, aiming to influence market rates and maintain effective control over money supply dynamics in response to prevailing economic conditions.
