Ghana has a large and very active consumer and industrial products and services sector that provides products and services to the Ghanaian economy and the West African sub-region. This sector is poised for significant growth over the next few years and new policies have been put in place by the Government to create an enabling environment, with an emphasis on manufacturing and exports. The export drive led to the creation of free zone areas, which has resulted in companies setting up in the country to export products to the sub-region and to the world at large.
The consumer and industrial products and services sector is dominated by subsidiaries of multinational companies and medium sized local companies including Unilever, Coca Cola, Toyota and Accra Brewery. There is increasing investment in the economy due to the institutionalisation of democracy in Ghana since 1992 and the relatively stable macro economic environment. The current economic environment coupled with the stability of the economy has made Ghana a destination of choice for foreign investors within the sub-region.
