Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/19/2012 -- Our Africa team expects Ghana to be a major economic outperformer over the coming years on a regional and global level - a view that looks even stronger given the onset of domestic oil production. In terms of above-ground opportunities on the consumer side, Ghanaian incomes are expected to increase significantly over the next few years. The country has a solid backdrop of political stability, which is especially important in West Africa, and while the macroeconomic climate has deteriorated somewhat recently, we still see strong opportunities in Ghana's food and drink industry.
