Why Ghana is Growing

An African nation that doing well economically

Friday, May 15, 2009

In the current economic climate, it's hard to imagine a place where the economy is growing by 4, 5, or 6 percent. A place where banks are adding branches and holding onto their deposits. That place exists. Even in the middle of a global recession, Ghana is doing great. The African nation has enjoyed more or less unbroken growth since the 1980s, propped up by gold and cocoa exports and now, oil. BBC Chief Economics Correspondent Hugh Pym has just returned to London from a reporting trip there and he joins us now.
