Ghana's economy has grown rapidly over the past decade, and the goal of becoming a middle-income country in the fairly near future now seems attainable. The likely contribution of the oil sector makes the goal look all the more achievable. Yet this goal is unlikely to be attained without a substantial advance in Ghana's industrial capability.

This volume presents the first general overview of Ghana's industrial sector. Each industry is profiled in detail, and the history and capabilities of leading firms are explored at length.  Our latest video shows John Sutton talking about the project:

This is the second volume in John Sutton's "Enterprise Map" series, which profiles the industrial capabilities of selected countries in sub-Saharan Africa. The first volume was on Ethiopia and the forthcoming third volume will be on Tanzania.

Further volumes in this series, focusing on Ethiopia, Tanzania and Zambia are available for purchase from the IGC's bookshop. The forthcoming fifth volume will be on Mozambique.
