Country Economic Forecasts - Ghana

After a strong start to the year, the economy gained even more traction in Q2, with GDP rising at the fastest pace in almost three years. A sharp increase in oil production was again the main growth driver, but a surprise rebound in services activity also boosted output. But we expect growth to slow in H2 as oil base effects come into play. The economy’s impressive performance in Q2 nonetheless has seen an upward revision to our growth forecast, now seen at 6.8% this year, 6.5% in 2018 and then 5.3% a year in 2019-21.
