Ghana’s story is one of relative development success. A beacon of stability and democracy for over 20 years, it has halved the proportion of people living in poverty and has held peaceful and internationally-recognised elections, most recently in 2016.
Ghana is the UK’s fourth biggest export market in Sub Saharan Africa. Our focus is on helping Ghana to end its reliance on aid and become a strong trading partner for the UK. We are: developing the private sector, helping the government of Ghana to become more accountable and transparent to its citizens and reduce corruption; and ensuring the poorest people in Ghana are not left behind as the country grows.
DFID’s programmes in Liberia are also run from the Ghana office.
