Title:Public corporations in Ghana (Gold Coast) during the Nkrumah period, 1951-66
Author:Greenstreet, Denis K.
Periodical:The African Review: A Journal of African Politics, Development and International Affairs
Geographic term:Ghana
Subject:public sector
Abstract:For fourteen years Dr. Kwame Nkrumah and the Convention People's Party ruled Ghana. A significant feature of this period is the growth in the sise of the public domain. Public enterprise was already used by the colonial administration in the development of the territory's infrastructure. What was new was the establishment of Government agencies outside the civil service machinery which drew inspiration from the British post-war public corporation. The article discusses seven related aspects: 1. the expansion of the public sector, 2. the public corporation and society, 3. the legislature and the public corporation, 4. Government and public corporation, 5. the State Enterprises Secretariat, 6. the Board of Directors, and 7. the performance of the public corporations.
