Akufo-Addo aims to raise Ghana’s GDP per capita from US$2,500 to US$4,500

President Nana Akufo-Addo has announced that his government is putting some measures in place to ensure that Ghana’s per capita GDP is almost doubled.

He told parliament in his state of the nation address on Wednesday, 8 March 2023 that the “government recognises that sustained growth must be deliberate, especially in a global landscape marked by forces of technology, trade, and intense competition.

“It requires a combination of leadership, social cohesion, and deep investments in core capabilities of people, firms, and institutions to harness our opportunities”.

“This is why”, he explained, “together with our private sector counterparts, we are anchoring Ghana’s medium-term growth drivers on competitiveness, integration, adaptation and digital innovation, all aimed at raising per capita GDP from the current two thousand, five hundred dollars (US$2,500) to four thousand, five hundred dollars (US$4,500) (aligning with the Ghana Beyond Aid Charter) by 2030”.
