Country overview: Ghana
Driving mobile-enabled digital transformation

Ghana has played a proactive role in the SDGs, which aim to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. Government commitment to the SDGs reflects the fact that, while Ghana is a fast growing economy (GDP growth has been an impressive 7% per year over the last 10 years), development challenges and gaps in access to basic services persist. Mobile - as a technology and as an industry - is uniquely placed to support the SDGs and development outcomes through the multiplier effect that comes from providing connectivity.

Despite the progress made, significant challenges remain to realising the potential of mobile to support socio-economic development. Many of these require collaboration between the public and private sectors. In this report, we highlight several areas that would benefit from such interaction between mobile operators and government departments.
