East African economy has held position for most of past decade
Ghana GDP surged 8.5% in 2017 as Sankofa field started output
Ghana has lost its mantle as the African economy likely to grow the quickest this year to Ethiopia, which has held the position for most of the past decade, International Monetary Fund data showed. West Africa’s second-biggest economy should expand 6.3 percent this year, the IMF said in its World Economic Outlook released Tuesday. That’s lower than the 8.9 percent forecast in October, and is also less than the raised 7.4 percent estimate for Ivory Coast and the prediction for Ethiopia, which was held at 8.5 percent.

The draft directive identifies four types of bids for the PPP agreements. A bill is underway to establish an autonomous body that will manage the structural and legal framework of the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) agreements, which did not exist in the country before. The Ministry of Finance & Economic Cooperation (MoFEC) has finalised the first draft of the directive, which also identified the bidding procedures of the partnership and draws the strategic plans for the implementation of the projects. A team composed of five members was formed by the MoFEC four months ago to draft a directive and other legal frameworks, including manuals, for the implementation of the PPP proclamation, which was legislated by the parliament in February of 2018.
