Ghana sets out infrastructure plan

6 March 2013 The government of Ghana is finalising its national infrastructure plan, which will include proposals for PPPs.

Minister of finance, Seth Terkper, has set out a new framework for the Public Investment Plan (PIP), which will see projects being built using more diversified financing including the use of PPP.

According to Terkper, among the main projects for 2013 will be the railway sector, covering the rehabilitation and modernisation of the existing lines as well as the development of the needed regulatory framework.

Other projects set to benefit over the coming year due to the plan also include the Takoradi Port Development project upgrade and proposals to meet the demands in the emerging oil and gas industry.
