Accra Made It To The Africa's Top Business Cities 2022 - Report

The Statista Global Business Cities has ranked Accra among the most centred business cities across the African continent taking into consideration the most relevant data for business decision makers.

Accra offers a blend of culture, shopping, and nightlife as well as outdoor adventures, and is easier to access, with the many flights that come into the country on a daily basis.

Ghana's capital city, Accra also offers a wide range of tourist adventures, wildlife encounters, and opportunities to visit the historical forts and castles in the country.  

Ghana is the only country located at the centre of the world and many tourist visitors will have many to see in the capital city of Accra, including the fine arts, beaches and museums. This makes Accra a major destination reference for visitors who want to connect with African history and its people.

Ghana is closely followed by Nigeria's biggest city, Lagos that made it to the Statista Global Business Cities ranking as the only two best West African cities to appear in the list.

Meanwhile Egypt's capital city, Cairo was identified and ranked the best business city in Africa, followed closely by their Middle East Neighbours, Algiers. The reports evaluate economically relevant cities from around the globe based on the most relevant data for decisions at the corporate level.

Out of the cities selected for analysis, the report indicates that Cairo is both an ancient city and a modern metropolis, which is one of the biggest cities in the Middle East and remains well-matched for exploring Egyptian culture.

Moreover, the city is believed to have developed into an important modern smart business city, and its GDP is higher than the regional average. 

The population size and GDP, and many other factors play an important role in determining the extent to which a city is suitable as a business location.

The index of the ranking is based on a number of sub-indices and that includes the dimension "Economy" which looks at the economic strength and the level of development of the respective country city.

Another dimension has to do with the "Business environment", a component focused on infrastructure and logistics in each of the listed cities.

The "Society" dimension analyses population development and the areas of education and standard of living. The last being the "Charisma" dimension which highlights aspects such as tourism, culture and the environment.
