Ghana Private Sector Expands Faster in April
The Stanbic Bank Ghana PMI increased to 52.4 in April of 2021 from 51.8 in the previous month, pointing to the ninth straight month of expansion in the country's private sector. Both output and new orders continued to rise solidly amid stronger demand. Employment also increased at a modest rate, but this was insufficient to keep on top of workloads as difficulties securing materials pushed backlogs of work to record levels. As a result, firms increased their purchasing activity at a solid pace amid efforts to secure inputs. Regarding prices, inflationary pressures remained sharp. Finally, business sentiment dipped to the lowest for a year, reflecting ongoing concerns about the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and price increases.

Ghana Composite PMI
The Stanbic Bank Ghana Purchasing Managers’ Index is based on data compiled from monthly replies to questionnaires sent to purchasing executives in approximately 400 private sector companies, which have been carefully selected to accurately represent the true structure of the Ghanaian economy, including agriculture, construction, industry, services and wholesale & retail. The panel is stratified by GDP and company workforce size. Survey responses reflect the change, if any, in the current month compared to the previous month based on data collected mid-month. The Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) is a composite index based on five of the individual sub-components with the following weights: New Orders- 0.3, Output- 0.25, Employment- 0.2, Suppliers’ Delivery Times- 0.15, Stock of Items Purchased- 0.1, with the Suppliers’ Delivery Times sub-component inverted so that it moves in a comparable direction.
