DEG Representative Office Accra
The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) covers 15 countries with a population of more than 300 million, among them Ghana and Nigeria. With improving framework conditions for investments, these countries feature high growth rates and increasing investments of domestic and foreign enterprises. The private sector is taking a dynamic development.
The current portfolio amounts to a volume of approximately 756 million euros. Focuses with additional potential are on agribusiness and food industry and on the infrastructure sector.
With the Accra Office, DEG opened its third office in Africa in 2008. Boosting its presence on this important continent, DEG wants to further strengthen the long-term dialogue with enterprises and disseminators in the region and contribute to sustainable private sector development in West Africa.
