The Report: Ghana 2012

Located on Africa’s western coast, Ghana is home to 24m people and a variety of ethnic groups. The country is divided into 10 administrative regions and has a strong executive branch, a unicameral legislature made up of 230 members, and an independent judiciary.

While a large portion of the country’s GDP – 30% – comes from the agriculture sector, the oil sector is growing rapidly and attention from investors abroad is expected to increase as oil revenues continue to grow. Ghana is a member of a number of international organisations, including the UN, the WTO, the African Union, and the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS). Having gained independence from the British in 1957, Ghana has made dynamic progress over the past 50 years.
