Ghana - Population

Growth surged to a one-year high in the third quarter of 2018, thanks to robust activity in the non-oil economy. The industrial sector once again led the expansion, growing at a double-digit pace in large part thanks to booming mining and quarrying output. Furthermore, the agricultural sector continued to expand healthily in Q3, helped by higher crop yields, while the services sector posted strong gains on the back of a solid expansion in the health and social work sub-sector. In addition, external sector metrics improved again in the third quarter: Exports rose at the highest rate since Q2 2017, propped up by higher oil exports. Meanwhile, incoming data suggests solid growth carried over into the fourth quarter. The PMI hit a six-month high in December amid improving demand conditions in the domestic market, leading to a strong increase in new orders.
