Abstract

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 is therefore a good moment to ask some questions. • What are the current capabilities of Ghanaian firms? • Where did those capabilities come from? • Can the development of the oil sector lead to a parallel advance in related local industries? 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.
