Since 2005, the Republic of Ghana has experienced an average economic growth rate of more than 7% annually. Such growth, in conjunction with the discovery of offshore oil reserves in 2007, has enabled the West African nation to halve the national poverty rate, attain middle-income status and stabilise relatively high per capita growth. These achievements, however, have also led to a reduction in aid inflows. Consequently, the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) – the national institution mandated to collect and administer taxes and import duties– is expected to maximise tax revenues and accordingly bridge the fiscal gap, fund the deficit and expand social programmes/infrastructure investments.
The Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau (KfW) was enlisted in 2012 to support the GRA in their modernisation process. In 2018, OOA & GOPA Infra won the tender to design and construct a new building to accommodate the Learning and Development department to improve IT and software skills for the entire staff of the institute.
