THE GHANAIAN ECONOMY is exhibiting a changed economic outlook, with improving growth reflecting both strong economic fundamentals and a positive response to them from the private sector. Improved macroeconomic policies, in particular an antiinflationary monetary policy and a consolidated fiscal policy, are contributing to the growth upsurge. The private sector is responding positively to the improved business environment, with rising bank lending and capital inflows suggesting increased investor confidence in the domestic market.
