The Accra Metropolitan Area is Ghana’s biggest, most diverse and most cosmopolitan city. Apart from being the country’s biggest city, it is also the second largest industrial centre in Ghana. The size of the city relative to others is matched by its comparative affluence. About half of all the motor vehicles in Ghana are located in the city.
Importantly, Accra is well connected to the outside world by an international airport, as well as a modern harbour, located about 30 kilometres to the east in the neighbouring city of Tema.
