image of Investment Policy Review - Ghana

Ghana is making a comeback in terms of attracting Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) after the economy had suffered a temporary setback in 1998. This publication reviews the investment climate in the West African nation. It is divided into four parts. The first part evaluates FDI trends in recent years. The second examines the investment framework of the country. The third part outlines Ghana's FDI potential and the strategic directions that are needed to tap it. The final part highlights the main conclusions and recommendations for an agenda that should be shaped through dialogue between all stakeholders and implemented by the government in close partnership with the private sector.



Trends and performance

One of the main aims of the Government of Ghana in recent years has been to instil confidence among investors and create an attractive environment for foreign direct investment (FDI). Ghana was among the first countries in Africa to pursue economic reforms. Yet FDI trends have not been sustained, and Ghana has not been able to reap the benefits that a more stable inflow of investments could bring.
