In its discussion of the main economic developments and policies in Ghana during 1992â€“99, Ghana: Economic Development in a Democratic Environment explores the important relationship between participatory democracy and successful economic development. The paper concludes that Ghanaâ€”Vision 2020, the countryâ€™s national development program that is a collaborative effort among government, social partners, and donors, has taken the country a long way toward middle-income status. The authors urge the next phase of economic reforms to concentrate on the areas with the greatest potential to reduce poverty and generate sustainable economic growthâ€”including agricultural development, trade, the public sector, privatization, and governance.
