Dominique Magazine: Ghana Businessmen’s Tour
Collaboration with Ghana Research Tours
In our continued quest to establish legacies and create international relationships, Dominique Magazine is working with Ghana Research Tours to conduct a business networking and exploration trip for black men who want to conduct international travel, expand their business networks and seek additional ways to generate income.
Ghana is exploding with growth and brothers this is our time to get in on the action early. Join us as we take a 10 day trip which will include time for fellowship, relaxing and excitement as we learn the economy and the future opportunities.
- According to the Salem Press Encyclopedia, Ghana’s market-based economy, with few barriers to trade and investment, sound management, and reduced poverty levels, strengthened in the last years of the twentieth century but has been challenged in the twenty-first century by loose fiscal policy, budget deficits, and a falling currency.
- The economy is driven mainly by agriculture and mineral mining. Oil production expanded and helped boost the economy, although oil revenues suffered from the global oil price crash in 2015. Ghana’s reputation as the “Gold Coast” has remained intact since the fifteenth century.
- Ghana’s estimated gross domestic product (GDP, purchasing power parity) for 2017 was $130.2 billion USD.
- Its per capita GDP was $4,600.
- In the 21st century, USA Today reports Ghana’s natural beauty is one of its greatest assets and the main draw for tourists. Ghana is a peaceful democracy with sunny beaches, a vibrant culture and numerous national parks, sanctuaries and reserves filled with wildlife. The Ghanaian Ministry of Tourism purports a mission to see Ghana become the tourist capital of West Africa and for tourism to become the leading sector of the economy.
- The country ranks 81st out of 230 nations as the most productive Ghana boasts as one of Africa’s fast-growing economies, driven mainly by its substantial natural riches and strong agricultural production.
- The International Monetary Fund (IMF) reports Ghana’s projected growth is between 8.3 percent and 8.9 percent, with only Bhutan (South Asia) ranking higher.
