Ghana economy is market-based with relatively few policy barriers to trade and investment in comparison with other countries in the region, and Ghana is well-endowed with natural resources. The economy was strengthened by a quarter century of relatively sound management, a competitive business environment, and sustained reductions in poverty levels, but in recent years has suffered the consequences of loose fiscal policy, high budget and current account deficits, and a depreciating currency.

Ghanian vehicles market fell down to 5.347 units in 2015 – after hitting 11.788 sales in 2013 – due to effects of the economic recession. However, the market registered a robust recovery in the following years, when in 2017 sales ended with registrations at 9.150.
