Ghana Infrastructure Investment Fund

Ghana Infrastructure Investment Fund

Ghana Infrastructure Investment Fund – GIIF

GIIF is a permanent investment vehicle established by statute to lead, promote, facilitate, fund and backstop the development of, and investment in, infrastructure. Development of industrial infrastructure in the context of accelerated economic growth will provide early opportunities that GIIF will now focus on. Despite Ghana’s economy showing an average economic growth rate of 5.0% per year over the past two decades, leading to attainment of lower middle income status of $1,300 per capita in 2010, infrastructure and industry have lagged behind. The creation of GIIF is therefore an impetus to re-invigorate economic opportunities especially through commercial infrastructure that can pay for itself. It is anticipated that investment in power generation, railways, roads, port services, etc., in direct coordination with industrial investment will contribute significantly to growth and expansion in the economy in a win-win for investors and the country. GIIF will drive optimum synergy by targeting investments linking multiple sectors and industries.
