Ghana kickstarts rail and port PPP

The Government of Ghana is hosting a market sounding day this week to assess interest in a major rail and port project that it intends to deliver under a PPP model.

Ghana's ministries of transport and railway development are hosting the market sounding day on Wednesday 6 December for the proposed Eastern Railway Line and Boankra Inland Port Project.

The event will determine market appetite as well as the private sector's preference in terms of the types of model that could be used to deliver the scheme.

The market sounding represents the first step forward for the project following the process of preparing the scheme to bring it to market.

Transaction advisers on the deal were chosen back in July 2014.
