A bridge in Ghana



Your opportunities in one of West Africa’s most dynamic economies: Ghana

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.

Regardless of which sector you operate in, we can help you harness the promising investment opportunities that exist in Ghana. We offer a tailor-made package of advice, contacts and financial support so that together we can identify and overcome specific investment obstacles. More information about our broad range of offerings is available here.

In cooperation with our Ghanaian partners, the Special Initiative is developing attractive business locations, including industrial and business parks, and promoting key growth sectors, such as the automotive industry and the processing of agricultural products. Our activities are not limited to these sectors, however. Are you a small or medium-sized Ghanaian enterprise? We can help you enhance your competitiveness or tap into new markets.

This is how Invest for Jobs supported companies in Ghana during Covid-19 pandemic

Since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, Invest for Jobs has supported local businesses with economic stabilisation measures. The aim was to preserve jobs and secure investment for the time being. To achieve this, Invest for Jobs engaged in close dialogue with local partners.

These measures contributed to maintaining the positive trends in the economic development in Ghana throughout the pandemic.
