Ghana was the first sub-Saharan nation to gain independence from colonial rule in 1957. In consequence, Ghana is considered a prime example of democratic and economic development on the African continent. The country is characterized by a relatively stable business and investment climate driven by stable political and macroeconomic conditions. Accordingly, the Ghanaian economy enjoys substantial growth. Thereby, the services sector is the largest contributor to the country’s GDP, mainly because of growth in the education, health, and ICT service industries. Thus, the ICT sector has evolved from an option to the very lifeline of businesses in Ghana. Market players in Ghana benefit from a well-supportive regulatory environment. With a median age of 20.5 years and more than 50 % of the population being between 20 and 64, Ghana offers an enormous pool of young talents for internationally operating ICT companies.
