Priority Investment Areas:

The Government of Ghana has highlighted five priority areas for Public Private Partnership (PPP) arrangements. This is critical as PPP is one of the key tools to accelerate and achieve developmental goals. These areas are: Energy, Utilities, infrastructure (particularly road networks, railroads and ports), housing and agribusiness.

Foreign Direct Investment Areas

For foreign direct investments however, that priority areas are broader. Ghana has comparative advantage in these areas and is capitalizing on this advantage to attract investment into the country. These are:

Information and Communication Technology (ICT)

Textile/apparel Manufacturing

Agro-food Processing

Seafood Processing

Jewellery/Handicraft Production

Metal/Hand Tool Fabrication


Light Industry/Assembling Plant

Ceramic Tiles Manufacturing


Ethnic Beauty Products

Additionally, investors can invest as enclave developers to provide necessary on-site infrastructure on designated export processing zones or propose their own land to be designated as export processing zones, for lease to other investors. The above sectors are however not exclusive.
