Benefits of expanding production in the Western Region

With competitive costs of production, proximity to abundant natural resources and a strategic location, the Western Region offers compelling benefits for companies seeking to expand their processing and manufacturing operations.

The region is rich in gold, bauxite, manganese, cocoa, citrus fruits, shea nuts, coconut, oil palm and fisheries.  It is home to Ghana’s growing oil & gas sector, the largest concentration of thermal power generation, expanding natural gas supply and Ghana’s main export port. The Takoradi port grew 33% last year to 8 million tons.

For businesses looking to enter this fast-growing region, the WestPark is building modern factories, warehouses, offices, residential and retail spaces and offers hands-on business development support. The WestPark is building a platform to raise the standards for businesses to operate, manufacture and distribute goods in West Africa.

With a large nearby workforce, new urban transport systems, lower corporate taxes for manufacturers, reduced electricity rates, abundant fresh water supply and strong links to regional markets, tenants at the WestPark Free Zone can lower costs and expand production.
