Ghana has growing PPP experience. However, the country does not have a standalone PPP Law, since a draft PPP bill has been stuck in the review phase since 2014.

At this moment, procuring PPPs is allowed under the National Policy on Public Private Partnerships adopted in 2011. Furthermore, the country has a PPP unit, which brings coordination and efficiency, and supports the country to have good levels of bid fairness and transparency.

At project level, there are delays due to procedural issues and also delayed government payments, which can both deter future investors and make banks reluctant to provide financing for PPP projects. In 2019 investment in PPP projects reached an amount of USD 4.9 billion, after USD 5.8 billion in 2018.
