The S&P Global Ghana PMI rose to 47 in December of 2022, from 44.9 in the prior month. The latest reading pointed to the eleventh consecutive month of falling private sector activity but stronger than in the last four months. Output fell for the twelfth month running, although to the least extent since August while new orders declined for the tenth consecutive month. Meanwhile, employment stabilized, leading to a solid increase in staff costs, while backlogs of work were markedly down again. In addition, both purchasing activity and inventory holdings decreased amid falling workloads and high prices. Furthermore, the appreciation of the Ghanaian cedi against the US dollar reversed some of the upward pressure caused by currency weakness. On prices, inflation slowed rapidly compared to the previous month, albeit a sharp increase in purchase costs. Looking ahead, optimism rose sharply and was at the highest level since April, linked to positive expectations on output in 2023. source: Markit Economics

Ghana Private Sector Activity Shrinks for 10th Month
The S&P Global Ghana PMI came in at 44.9 in November of 2022, up slightly from 44.0 in October but still pointing to a marked decline in the health of the private sector for the tenth consecutive month. New orders, business activity and staff numbers fell further, although the rates of decline were softer than in the previous month. Currency weakness and steep inflationary pressures continued to hit demand. Meanwhile, purchasing activity also decreased amid declining demand and higher prices for inputs. On the price front, overall input costs increased rapidly and at a faster pace that was among the sharpest in the past eight years. In turn, selling price inflation hit a series-record high. Lastly, business sentiment remained muted in November, despite improving from the previous month, with hopes that prices will stabilise and economic conditions improve over the coming year.
