The International Monetary Fund puts Ghana’s GDP per capita in current terms in the year 2015 at one thousand 340 dollars four cents.
This represents 5.9% increase over the 2008 figure, which is higher than that of Cote d’Ivoire, Senegal and Kenya.
A statement signed by the Minister of Communications, Dr. Edward Omane Boamah acknowledged that mere economic growth and its associated indicators are necessary but not sufficient measurements of human well-being.
He stressed government’s commitment to sustaining gains made so far in human development.
The statement said Ghana’s education system ranked among the best in African. The University of Ghana was recently ranked the 7th best University in Africa by the Times Higher Education.
