Summary
This short report, which will be updated as events warrant, provides background information on current developments in Ghana and U.S. bilateral relations with Ghana. In mid-February 2008, President and Mrs. Bush are slated to travel to five African countries, including the West African country of Ghana, which in 2006 signed a $547 million Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) Compact. They are to "review firsthand" U.S. AIDS and health care assistance and to "discuss how the United States can continue to partner with African countries to support continued democratic reform, respect for human rights, free trade, open investment regimes, and economic opportunity" in Africa. The Bushes are visiting Ghana, in part, because it is widely seen as a key U.S. partner and as an African "success story." Ghana has undergone a successful transition to democracy, has enjoyed substantial economic gains in recent years, and is a stable country in an often volatile sub-region. Ghana has helped to mediate the political and/or military conflicts that have affected several West Africa countries over the last quarter century. It also is praised for its willingness to contribute troops to international peacekeeping operations, both in Africa and in other global regions. The remainder of this report discusses the following topics relevant to Ghana: domestic politics, the 2008 election, President Kufuor's record, the economy, international relations, and U.S.-Ghana relations
