Ghana is predicted to recover well from recent economic difficulties, provided it can maintain its programme of fiscal consolidation and resolve problems in the oil sector. It faces challenges in terms of debt-servicing, inflation, a weak currency and low oil prices, but its democracy has passed a test in the recent peaceful election and the country has the potential to benefit from its large young population. Rising school enrolment and the introduction of comprehensive free public senior high school will create a growing demand for tertiary education in due course. Quality is a concern, as well as job creation for a generation with higher levels of education, but the new government has already launched a number of initiatives to embrace the challenges ahead.
