Malaysia and Ghana both gained their independence from British rule in 1957. Both economies were relatively resource rich. Ghana was the leading exporter of cocoa while Malaya, as it was then known, was pre-eminent in exporting rubber and tin. This discussion paper, delivered at the Ghana Growth Forum, draws possible lessons from Malaysia’s high growth and economic diversifi cation over the decades that followed.
