The UK government has pledged funding support for three major infrastructural projects in Ghana this year.

An 80 million Euro support for the modernisation of the Kumasi Central Market will see upgrades of its electrical networks, water supplies, generators, fire detection systems and public transport.

A $50 million facility will also be used for the construction of a new international terminal building for the Tamale Airport to improve tourists’ access and promote economic growth as well as a new multi-purpose facility for the benefit of Hajj pilgrims.

As well, a UK export finance guarantee of a 20 million Euro loan will support every aspect of the Bekwai hospital’s construction including an emergency department, a maternity ward, operating theatre and provision of 120 new beds.

The UK’s Minister for Africa, Ms Harriet Baldwin, announced the funding support on Tuesday, 26 February 2019 at the end of the second UK-Ghana Business Council (UKGBC) Meetings held in London, UK.
