The economy looks set to gain traction this year, driven mainly by an increase in oil output as production at the TEN project begins to ramp up. That said, our projection is on the conservative side in this regard as we have not ruled out longer-than-anticipated Jubilee field maintenance scheduled for H1. However, improved government assistance and less severe Harmattan winds bode well for agricultural output this year, while lower inflation and interest rates will support demand-side activity as disposable incomes rise. GDP growth is forecast to rebound sharply to 6.3% in 2017 from an estimated 3.6% last year, and to remain above 6% over the 2018-20 period.

The December elections saw another smooth transition of power, with the NPP taking office after eight years of NDC government. The new administration's strategy to reduce taxes to support the private sector presents additional upside growth potential, but also raises the risk of slower fiscal consolidation, which may complicate relations with the IMF and in turn adversely impact investor sentiment and Ghana's ability to raise external debt.
