Ghana

Overview

Ghana is ranked a Lower Middle Income Economy by the World Bank and is predicted to be one of the most promising economies in the sub-Saharan region despite its recent slump. The Ghana Stock Exchange (GSE) is the third-largest stock exchange in Africa after Johannesburg and Nigeria while British Airways ranked Ghana on its Hot List 2015 for countries to visit.

Political

Ghana’s wealth of resources, democratic political system and transparent regulatory system in respect to private ownership and investment makes it undoubtedly one of Africa’s leading lights. Gaining the world’s confidence with a peaceful political transition in 2016 and a grounded and firm commitment to democracy has helped to drive growth in foreign direct investment (FDI) in recent years.

Economy

Key sectors that contribute to Ghana’s GDP are agriculture (~30%); industry (~20%); services (~50%). Its main industries are oil, mining, lumbering, light manufacturing, aluminium smelting, food processing, cement, small commercial ship building.

The Ghana Investment Promotion Centre (GIPC) was adjudged the Best Investment Promotion Agency (IPA) in West and Central Africa for 2015 at the Annual Investment Meeting (AIM) Awards in Dubai.

During the global financial crisis, when most countries did not show good growth levels due to the global economic downturn, Ghana had an unprecedented economic growth rate of 7.3%. GDP grew by ~4% in 2017.

Ada Foah

Ada Foah is a town on the southeast coast of Ghana, where the Volta River meets the Atlantic Ocean. It’s known for palm-lined beaches and estuary islands. Marine turtles breed in the area. On the seafront are traces of Fort Kongenstein, built by 18th-century Danish traders. Next to the old Presbyterian Church is a 19th-century missionary cemetery. Songor Lagoon is a wetland area with numerous bird species.

Shai Hills

Along the Accra-Akosombo highway, approximately 54km from Goi, lies a 51km2 stretch of land full of baboons, green monkeys, antelopes and zebras. The area also has different species of plants, rocks and mountains. The beautiful scenery and clean air have a calming and refreshing effect on almost all visitors to the park.

Known as the Shai Hills Resource Reserve, it was established in 1971 to conserve wildlife and the cultural sites of the indigenous people who were driven away from the area by the colonial masters in 1892.

Akosombo

Located in Ghana’s Eastern Region, not too far from the Volta region, is the small town of Akosombo. Still deeply rooted in nature, this peaceful enclave is only two hours from Goi.

Enjoy the views from the spectacular Adomi Bridge, feel the roar of the Akosombo Dam, set sail on the Dodi Princess, go fishing and hiking in the forest and surrounding lake.

Keta Lagoon

Keta Lagoon, also called Anlo-Keta lagoon, is the largest of the over 90 lagoons that cover the 550 km stretch of the coastline of Ghana. It is located in the eastern coast of Ghana and separated from the Gulf of Guinea by a narrow strip of sandbar. This open salty water is surrounded by flood plains and mangrove swamps.

There are seasonal inflow of sea water during high tide from the Gulf of Guinea and regular inflow of rivers. The rivers which drain into the lagoon include the Aka, the Tordzi River and Belikpa stream which enter the lagoon from the north. The lagoon is surrounded by many settlements.

Accra

Accra is the capital of Ghana, on the Atlantic coast of West Africa about 72km from Goi. Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park honors Ghana’s first president, who helped lead the country to independence. The park contains Nkrumah’s mausoleum and a museum charting his life. Makola Market is the city’s vast, colorful bazaar. Enjoy the food, music, nightlife, famous monuments, national theatre, art and the people.

Investor summary

The opportunity

The opportunity

Ghana has a 540km coastline, yet with only two noteworthy resorts. Our business is to build a world class, 3-5-star resort on the coastline of Greater Accra, only one hour from Airport City. It is the first project in a series of planned projects across Ghana’s most beautiful beaches, mountains and lakes.

Ghana is currently the best African market to invest in

Ghana is currently the best African market to invest in

In 2016, Ghana was ranked one of the best places for doing business in West Africa, ahead of Nigeria and Cote d’Ivoire (according to the 2016 Ease Of Doing Business report). Ghana is also the beacon of African democracy, having successfully transitioned power peacefully over the past 24 years, making it the most attractive country for FDI investment in West Africa.

Our tourism sector has incredible potential

Our tourism sector has incredible potential

Ghana has one of richest histories in West Africa. As the first African country to gain independence from colonial rule, this history includes pan-African history, over 20 slave castles and forts and industrial history (particularly in agriculture and mining). It also has some historical masterpieces that tell the African story of independence and unity. Unfortunately, lack of investment and maintenance means that these assets are not fully appreciated or enjoyed by the public. One of the main goals of this project is to maintain our neglected coastline and make it accessible to local, regional and international guests.

The hotel and resort sector in Ghana is currently very attractive

The hotel and resort sector in Ghana is currently very attractive

Ghana’s 3-5 star resorts and hotels are enjoying occupancies greater than those in developed markets due to lack of options and competition. There is a real gap in the market for a world class 3-5 star beach front resort due to the lack of attractive and feasible options. In fact, a local looking for an impressive beach front option may spend more than $800 or travel over five hours.
