The Sekyere South District, formerly the Afigya-Sekyere District is one of the twenty-seven (27) districts in the Ashanti Region of Akanland. Its capital is Agona.

Geography

Sekyere South District is nearly all tropical forest. The district contains many types of lumber wood. There are usually around 120 days of rain per year, but most of these occur during the "rainy season", between March and July.

Economy

Two thirds of the district's workforce are farmers, with most of the rest employed in the service sector. Major food crops include cassava, plantain, yam, and maize. The biggest cash crops are cocoa, citrus fruits, coffee, and palm oil. Many people practice kente weaving and local forms of pottery, which are then exported.

Education

There are 329 schools in the district.

Health

There are 18 health centers in the district.

Tourism

Many of the Ashanti region's most popular tourist attractions, such as Trobo Waterfall and the Aboye Festival, are in the Sekyere South district.
