The Ghana Shared Growth and Development Agenda (GSGDA) II, 2014-2017, is the fifth in the
series of medium-term national development policy frameworks prepared over the past two
The transformation of Ghana’s economy and society will be anchored in its prospects and
platforms for development. The prospects include: building or strengthening the essential
elements of good governance and promoting light manufacturing that builds upon Ghana’s
comparative strength in natural resource endowments and the large pool of skilled and semi-skilled labour force. On the other hand, the transformation platforms include such key pillars
as institutional capacity and management; a growing infrastructure base; an enabling
environment for business; social intervention and public safety net to ensure that Ghana’s
development process is inclusive; and an abundance of relatively high quality labour.

Consequently, the medium-term priority policies are anchored in the following thematic areas:
1. Ensuring and sustaining macroeconomic stability,
2. Enhancing competitiveness of Ghana’s private sector
3. Accelerated agriculture modernisation and sustainable natural resource management
4. Oil and gas development
5. Infrastructure and human settlements development
6. Human Development, Productivity and Employment
7. Transparent, Responsive and Accountable Governance
