Ghana (Republic of Ghana) located in West Africa. It is bordered by Burkina Faso, Gulf of Guinea, Cote d’Ivoire and Togo. Accra is capital and largest city.
* Geographic coordinates: 800 N, 200 W
* Area:
* Total: 239,460 km2
* Land: 230,940 km2
* Water: 8,520 km2
* Coastline: 539 km
* Climate: tropical; warm and dry in the southeast coast; humid in southwest; hot and dry in north

2.1 . Population
The population of Ghana increases rapidly and rice is a main daily food; so it is predictable the demand for rice will increase significantly along with the rise of population. This is an opportunity for Angimex to raise sales.

2.2 . Labor participation rate (% of total population ages 15+)
Labor participation rate is over 60% and remained constant 2006-2010 (WorldBank 2011) that provides a large human resource (both skilled and unskilled worker) at relatively low rates. The minimum wage is GH¢3.73 Ghana cedis (approximately US$2.49) per day. These make Ghana more attractive to foreign investment.
Figure: Adapted from WorldBank 2011

Adapted from Department of Affairs and Trade of the Australian Government (2011)

Second, according to Tawiah (2011), Ghana is the World’s fastest growing economy in 2011 (20.146%). Besides, Ghana’s has one of the highest GDP per capita in West Africa (Trading Economics 2011).GDP per capita increase from $2600 in 2009 to $3100 in 2011 (CIA World Factbook 2012).
Next, though agriculture contributes 28.3% to GDP, rice is not main product. Local production of rice is only 30% (Basiru, A 2009) but Ghana demands for 1.65 million tons annually by 2015. Hence, imported rice would rise in further years.
Ghana is very open for foreign investments. Hundred per cent (100%) foreign ownership is permitted. Mercuric medicated soap, toxic waste or contaminated goods are prohibited.
a. Duty
* Standard rate of duty for rice: 20%.
