Ghana: Ghana's Growing Hotel Sector an Opportunity for U.S. Exporters

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

The hotel industry in Ghana grew rapidly over the past ten years, catering to an expansion of both business and tourism. The number of hotels and lodges in Ghana increased from 1,250 to 2,914 during 2008-2017, a 54 percent expansion. During this period, a number of internationally branded hotels opened, primarily in Accra, with others planned in the near future. The industry plays a major role in the food service sector, and is one driver of the country’s growing imports of high-value food and beverage products. This sustained growth in the hotel sector creates opportunities for U.S. exporters of food and agricultural products. Opportunities exist across various products and product groups, including poultry, beef, rice, seafood, dairy, prepared foods, beverages (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) and many others.
