As Africa’s leading producer of gold, the mining sector accounts for a significant portion of the economy. The sector is also a major employer, as it is composed of large-scale mining outfits, and artisanal and small-scale operators. In 2023 the government began to implement reforms on raw materials exports to support in-country, higher-value processing and manufacturing. While the coming years are likely to see a greater focus on downstream activities, traditional segments such as gold are expected to continue to grow, pushing total production upwards. The expansion of the sector is also set to further boost Ghana’s attractiveness for potential investors.
