Development assistance

From 1958, Denmark assisted Ghana with development. The development assistance stopped in the end of the 1970s to 1983. Ghana was chosen as a Danish programme country in 1990.[5] Denmark assists Ghana with economic development, peace and stability, health, transport, support to the private sector and the fight against poverty.[6]
