Ghana, in long form the Republic of Ghana, is a country in West Africa located on the edge of the Gulf of Guinea. Ghana's neighboring countries are Côte d'Ivoire to the west, Burkina Faso to the north and Togo to the east. Its capital is the city of Accra and its inhabitants are Ghanaians. The country is part of ECOWAS.

The official language is English. The currency is the cedi. Ghana has been an associate member of the International Organization of the Francophonie since 2006 and gives an ever more important place to French.

Modern Ghana has no direct geographic or historical ties to the Empire of Ghana. Modern Ghana, formerly the Gold Coast, was renamed in homage to the Empire of Ghana by Kwame Nkrumah at the time of independence. The colonial name of Côte-de-l'Or comes from the country's many gold mines which, before being exploited by British, German, Dutch and French settlers, were used extensively by the Ashanti ethnic group, which keeps the tradition of gold jewelry, a tradition that has also spread to the neighboring abron ethnic group.

Since the 2000s, Ghana has, along with China and Cambodia, the highest national GDP growth rates. They are among the only ones to exceed the 10% annual growth mark around 2005.

This does not prevent the Ghanaian economy from remaining fragile (like most of the national economies of West Africa), because it is still essentially oriented towards the primary sector, in a globalized era when the time has come for the advent of industrial production. standardized and above all services. Beans and products derived from coconuts still represent more than a third of the market value of national production.

Since 2013, due to an overly flexible fiscal policy, a devalued currency, recurring electricity problems and the drop in oil, GDP has fallen by 30%, returning to the level of 2010.
