Editorial Description

At the first ever talks between leaders from developing countries and the G7 group of leading industrial nations in the year 2000, James Wolfensohn, President of the World Bank, said "it is important that when the G7 address the issue of debt they address a range of inter-related questions including investment in developing countries and technology transfers." To this end a call for partnership between the developed and the developing nations was made. This book evaluates the importance of foreign investment and trade promotion in the economic development of Ghana as a country within the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS). The book specifically investigates the usefulness of development preconditions in attracting foreign investments into developing countries to boost the manufacture of semi-processed and manufactured goods to enhance exports, trade, economic growth and development with a view to reducing povery margins.
