Japan to invest US$97 million for infrastructure in Ghana

Japan will provide ¥3.6 billion (US$35 million) to renovate roads in Ghana.

In Ghana, 95% of domestic transportation depends on roads, and the volume of traffic has been increasing with economic growth. These funds will help renovate the National Trunk Road N8 in the Central Province and the Tema Motorway Roundabout, which will facilitate transportation in the region and stimulate economic growth. This project embodies Japan’s pledge to promote “Quality Infrastructure Investment” as announced during the Seventh Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD7).
