In an era of globalization and heightened competitiveness in the pursuit of national interests, no nation can develop effectively without implementing a clear a strategy that seeks to harness the potentials of a majority of its human resource including its diaspora and those who consider that country as a homeland. Global economic events beginning in 2008 have continued to shrink capital for development
financing and budget support for developing countries.

In addition, Ghana’s new status as a middle-income country at the lower echelon has resulted in reduced, limited donor support on account of the principle of differentiation. Leveraging on the multiple roles of the Diaspora as senders of remittances, investors, philanthropists, innovators, exportable labor and first movers in the growth of important sectors such as tourism, health and in the development of human capital may well contribute to weaning Ghana off its dependence on aid and development financing which is waning from developed countries.

Ghanaians at home and abroad and those with whom we share common ancestry are the single most important assets of this country. The collective ability to effectively harness our human resources and capital, both at home and abroad, for national development is, therefore, the key to our advancement as a nation. Establishing close and productive partnerships with the Ghanaian Diaspora and peoples of African descent with whom we have common ownership of this country, will no doubt ensure to our common good.
Ghana‘s development vision, as clearly articulated in the Ghana Shared Growth and Development Agenda (2010-2013), is to lift as many Ghanaians as possible out of poverty in the shortest possible time through a structural transformation of the economy.
