Ghana: United States
Country Study > Chapter 5 > National Security > Foreign Military Assistance > United States


Military relations between Ghana and the United States have been minimal and have been concentrated in the International Military Education and Training (IMET) program, which includes professional military education, management, and technical training. Between fiscal year (FY) 1950 and FY 1990, the value of training under the IMET program amounted to US$3.5 million. Estimated IMET figures for FY 1991 were US$252,000; for FY 1992, US$175,000; and for FY 1993, US$250,000. No credits under the United States Foreign Military Sales program were given to Ghana after 1955; in FY 1995, however, $300,000 in credits was reportedly made available. Private United States companies received about US$905,000 worth of commercial export licenses for Ghanaian arms purchases from FY 1950 to FY 1990.
