Ghana achieved lower middle income status in 2010 after a period of high economic growth.  However, since 2012 economic growth has slowed down.  Traditionally, the economy has depended on the export of raw materials such as gold, cocoa and timber.  Despite discovering oil a decade ago, the country is still faced with high levels of unemployment particularly among the youth.
