BUSINESS CLIMATE

Information and Telecommunications Technology, which is key to business
transactions as the world becomes more globalized, has seen a marked
growth in the country, and has risen from 4% to 15%

Ghana at Independence in 1957 adopted a centrally planned economy model
with heavy state participation in economic activities and regulation of
prices and wages. After a Coup d’etat in 1966, attempts were made to
de-regulate the economy with mild success.

Due to several military interventions in government, the economy
experienced ups an downs culminating in a near collapse by 1982. In 1983,
Ghana embarked on an Economic Recovery Program (ERP) that saw the economy
recovering sufficiently to experience GDP growth rates of 4-5% per annum
from 1989 to 1999. By the year 2000 when the new administration of the NPP
took over from the NDC, all the key macro-economic indicators were in
disarray.

Year on year inflation averaged 30-40%; interest rate was 40-46%; GDP
3-4%; GDP per capita US$300-360; Exchange rate between Ghana’s currency
and its major trading partners depreciated at a high rate reaching 49.2%
in 1999 and 96.8% 2000. Consequently, certain social facilities such as
education and health began to crumble. Unemployment of most resources
including labour was very high, and standard of living was negatively
affected.

This situation convinced the new government to adopt the Highly Indebted
Poor Countries Initiative (HIPC) in 2001. This has been successfully
managed resulting into more than US$4 billion of debt cancellation.
