There has been an increase in the number of people employed within Ghana's formal sector, it has been reported.
The formal sector, or that which offers regular wages and hours, has experienced an employment growth of 1.5 percent since the end of 2007, reported myjoyonline.com.
It was also discovered that 102,567 employees entered the sector last year, in comparison to 90,906 in 2006.
Kwasi Osei, the director general of the Social Security and National Insurance Trust, said that this rise is "a reflection of growth in the formal industry".
He added that it is the largest increase the sector has seen for a significant amount of time.
Elsewhere in South Africa, high-profile legal figure and formal presidential advisor Chief Afe Babalola called for junior lawyers' pay to be increased.
He stated that their current wages are "unacceptable" and that many have poor standards of living as a result.
