The Report: Ghana 2022 ICT

Ghana’s ICT sector has proven to be one of the country’s fastest-growing industries in recent years, with key market players offering more innovative products as data traffic surged amid the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020. Indeed, the sector had increased its contribution to GDP from $900m, or 2.3% of the total, in 2014, to $1.7bn and 3.6%, respectively, in 2017. The expansion of telecoms services has fuelled innovation and investment in ICT subsectors such as software, application platform development and mobile money. Looking ahead, policy efforts are likely to bolster growth due to the strategic importance of ICT in digital and industrial development plans. For instance, the $212m e-Transform Ghana Project, supported by the Word Bank, has provided funding and increased access to digital technologies, and strengthened instructional capacity.
