Ghana considered a prime example of democratic and economic
development in an African country. In 2019, Ghana’s real gross domestic
product (GDP) grew by around 6.1 per cent compared with the previous
year. This was mainly due to the development of new oilfields and
particularly to reforms in the agricultural sector. Further investment
by the private sector is needed to promote and consolidate this growth.
That is what Ghana’s Government hopes to achieve by adopting a ten-point
agenda for industrial transformation. Foreign direct investments are a
key part of this programme.
