Abstract:After gaining their independence, African countries followed various industrialization policies. Ghana started out along the Kenya and pre-Arusha Tanzania pattern (industrialization via private enterprises), both before independence with Nkrumah already in power, and after independence (in 1957) up till 1962 and up till 1961. Since 1961 and up to the coup in February 1966 by the NLC that ousted Nkrumah, Ghana relied primarily on public-enterprise investment. Sections: Public-sector enterprises in manufacturing - Disinvestment - Government's and public opinion's attitude - management - Centralization - Salaries and incentive compensation - Marketing - Management agreements - working capital - Supply of raw materials for agro-industrial factories - Conclusion. Ref., notes, tables, appendix: GIHC and UNIDO/Special Fund.
