NEWS
Ghana

This Oxford Business Group report explains how “cooling inflation, positive consumer sentiment and an expected rebound for the economy should underpin a strong performance for Ghana’s retail sector in 2017”.
With a new administration now in power, we believe there is a positive sentiment within the expatriate business and diplomatic communities as well. “Ghana is opened for business again” said Nana Akufo-Addo in last Saturday’s swearing-in ceremony. We look forward to seeing change and results. Learn more before and after the ceremony’s pictures here.

Elections and holidays insecurity 2

An increase of insecurity in December is a yearly occurrence, coupled each 4 years with uncertainty on how the general election period will go. We talked about this in our November 21 issue: learn more with the November 25
message from the US Embassy on this matter. Voting day is this Wednesday.
Exchange rates
After two bad years, the Cedi was surprisingly stable during 2016, unlike during past election years. Well, this is over with the recent plunge due to seasonal demand for dollars and election uncertainty. The US$ is at 4.32 today. See the
chart and learn more.

NEWS
The annual Ease of Doing Business report from the World Bank indicates this year that Ghana is the best ranked in West Africa. According to the rankings, Ghana beat Nigeria and its neighbor, Ivory Coast. Africa wide, Ghana was ranked as the ninth best place for doing business and globally 108 out of 190 countries ranked.
Countries are assessed based on 11 indicators (ranking for Ghana out of 190 countries) such as starting a business (110), dealing with construction permits (117), access to a credit facility (44 - at what interest rate?), registering a property (77), access to electricity (120), paying taxes (122), protecting minority investors (87), trading across borders (154), enforcing contracts (114) and resolving insolvency (155).

The World Bank does not rank on the delays in obtaining the various licenses without which one cannot start business and every foreign entity in Ghana has an opinion on the cost of doing business here.
All three rating agencies, Moody’s, Fitch as well as Standards and Pour’s, have given Ghana a positive outlook for 2017.

Hospitality
After openings under smaller-scale brands such as Movenpick and Kempinski (both managing 80+ properties worldwide), two of the largest international hotels chains are entering the Ghana market.
Marriott International is already present in Ghana with its Protea Hotels brand in Takoradi but many may have noticed the Marriott signboard on the front of a building at the airport roundabout on Airport Bypass: the Accra Marriot Hotel is opening soon.

Hilton has plans to grow its 50-years old presence in Africa from the existing 39 hotels to more than 80 hotels in the next 3-5 years. That includes their fastest-growing brand across the continent, Hilton Garden Inn (639 properties worldwide): 11 properties are in the pipeline, with locations such Nairobi and Abuja opening soon, Windhoek, Gaborone and… Accra: under a management agreement with Independence Properties Ltd, whose majority shareholder is Trasacco Estates Development Company Ltd., the 280-room property on Liberation Road is planned for opening in 2018. This will be the Africa’s first modular build hotel, a concept that Hilton first premiered in 2014.
