Overview of the Manufacturing Sector in Ghana

The Ghanaian economy is made up of three main sectors; they are agriculture, industry and services sectors. The unimpressive performance of the industrial sector (comprising manufacturing, mining and quarrying, utility services and construction) was reversed in 2017 with a growth rate of 19.3%. This surge is largely attributable to the deferral of the FPSO Turret Remediation Project to 2018 as well as the increase in revenue from new production from the Sankofa-Gye Nyame and the Tweneboa Enyenra Ntomme (“TEN”) oil fields.
