The Ghanaian economy is one of Africa’s strongest and most diversified.

This follows a quarter of a century of relative stability and good governance.

The country’s growing prosperity as well as stable and maturing democratic political system has transformed it into a West African regional power.

Ghana has an economic plan entitled "Ghana Vision 2020".

The plan aims to turn Ghana into a developed country some-time between 2020 and 2029.

702’s Nikiwe Bikitsha interviewed Michael Adubofour, MD and founder of Mike Adu Company Limited, while on a fact-finding mission in Ghana.

Adubofour’s company – which he founded with a mere $2000 – is a major player in the manufacturing of roofing sheets and nails, and a key importer of other building materials.
