From Ghana Business
President John Dramani Mahama said recently that the government has prioritized the development of infrastructure and business development to propel the socio-economic development of the country.
In that respect, he appealed to the international investor community to take advantage of the stable security prevailing in the country to invest in all sectors of the economy.
President Mahama said this when a Japanese business delegation called on him at the Flagstaff House, Kanda.
The delegation, which has been in the country for the past three days to actualize some agreements that were signed during the Tokyo International Conference for African Development (TICAD), was at the Presidency to seek the support of the President.
President Mahama said Ghana has a comparative advantage in energy production on account of the hydro-electric dams, the thermal plants, and the small dams that are dotted throughout the country.
He said apart from expanding these projects to increase power generation for both domestic and external consumption, government is also piloting projects on solar and wind energy to complement hydro and thermal energy.
The President said Ghana is connected to the neighboring countries in terms of energy transmission and would export the excess power to them in the coming years.
