About Ghana

Ghana is home to a multiethnic society and one of the most stable democracies in West Africa. Ghana shares borders with Côte d’Ivoire, Burkina Faso and Togo and has a coastline on the Atlantic Ocean. By the 12th century, the coastal part of Ghana had become a regional hub in the trade of gold and generated wealth and power for its inhabitants. Agriculture, forestry, and fishing are key industries in Ghana, both employing large portions of the population and making up an important part of its GDP. However, notable industries include Cacao cultivation, whose production accounts for one-half of Ghana’s total arable land. Ghana also exports primary goods such as sugar, coffee, or palm oil. Ghana also produces glass, aluminum, and cement.
