What is the relative size of the expatriate community? How would you describe overall morale among expatriates?

There are a few Westerners here affiliated with the government. I've seen a few people from the Middle East and a conspicuous Chinese population here. - Aug 4, 2017
It is pretty large. There is a large diplomatic community plus a large gold mining community, oil and gas and textiles. Generally most expats make the best of it. You do find the odd person who loves Ghana. - Apr 6, 2017
