Hydrocarbons a rounded contribution: Oil and gas output is now being added to an already buoyant economy. Hydrocarbon production will generate income that can help the government to balance its books and fund national infrastructural and social projects. Yet it can also provide the energy resources needed to diversify the economy, create skilled employment and further Accra's aim of turning Ghana into a middle-ranking economy. Mar 1, 2014 1442
Agriculture catching up the modern era: most of Ghana's agricultural output is produced by small-scale farmers, although a few large estates are also important players.

East vs West--who is winning in Africa? The accepted wisdom is that for Africa, there has been a momentum shift away its traditional trade and investment partners in the West towards the East, particularly China and to a lesser extent, India and Malaysia.
