This chapter includes the following articles.
With one of the region’s highest levels of mobile data penetration and a thriving start-up scene, Ghana’s ICT sector is one of the most active parts of the economy, and the government recognises that ICT is a central economic driver and enabler, becoming increasingly active in its support of the industry, while also working to tackle new threats such as cybercrime in its goal of developing Ghana’s middle-income status. Broadband internet is a growing necessity to support businesses of all kinds, thus Ghana is currently rolling out 4G networks. Economic and demographic factors mean that this is a fast-growing market, with a young generation increasingly enthusiastic about communications and technology. This chapter contains interviews with Kenneth Ashigbey, CEO, Ghana Chamber of Telecommunications; and William Senyo, Co-founder and CEO, Impact Hub Accra.
