Underdevelopment in Africa has been historical and a global concern coupled with the quest for good governance. Several efforts have been made in academia, national governments, the international community, and other institutional arrangements to reverse the trend. These efforts however are yet to produce a lasting result as Africa is still characterized by low productivity output, poverty and a widening technology gap when compared to other developing regions of the world. Conventional approaches used to address the African problem have consistently been devoid of indigenous technology development. Technology is here seen as paramount to every form of production on which an economy is based. This study is therefore aimed at developing a sustainable technology development framework for the production industry in Africa that focuses on Ghana for socio-techno-economic development. The study confirmed the absence of a framework for technology development in Ghana and therefore, proposed one for Africa. Using data from Ghana, the focus therefore is on manufacturing of production technologies for local industry.
