Ghana

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.

Ghana has a space program; it launched a satellite, GhanaSat-1. that was successfully developed by students at the All Nations University, based in Koforidua. They sent it into orbit from the International Space Station, in 2017.

When meeting a group of people in Ghana, it is good manners to begin shaking hands with the person on the right and move to the left, not the other way around.

AmaliTech Training Academy Takoradi

The AmaliTech Training Academy in Takoradi was opened to provide employment opportunities outside the capital Accra. The training center has a capacity of 150 trainees and trains over 900 trainees in a 3-year period. The training programme offers both general and specialized curricula taught in a vocational training system comparable to the German dual vocational training system. Trainees are offered employment in the service center upon completion of their training. The training content includes IT, data and digital skills but also the soft skills required to start their own business or apply for other jobs in other companies. The curricula are developed based on the labor market needs in the IT sector in Ghana and customer requirements in Europe. To ensure diverse job opportunities upon completion of the training program, AmaliTech focuses on the mismatch between commonly available skills and skill levels to ensure the employability of trainees after training.
