Ghana: Exporter Guide

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   GH2022-0013

Ghana’s economic growth was significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, with real GDP growth of only 0.4 percent. Following the pandemic-induced slowdown, economic recovery was expected to grow in 2022 to 5.5 percent. However, recent economic shocks have caused the Ghanaian Cedi to depreciate by about 24.5 percent, prompting the Government of Ghana to seek assistance from International Monetary Fund. Despite these setbacks, Ghana remains among one sub-Saharan Africa’s fastest- growing economies. In 2021, Ghana imported about $3.2 billion in agricultural and related products. Imports from the United States totaled $156.6 million.
