The Japanese Ambassador to Ghana, H.E. Mochizuki Hisanobu, has paid a courtesy call on the Minister for Roads and Highways, Hon. Kwasi Amoako-Attah in his office, Accra.
The two held fruitful discussions on bilateral cooperation focused on some road projects, including the Tema Motorway Roundabout project, the Assin Praso-Assin Foso project, the Volivo Bridge project, and the Technical Assistance project on maintenance of roads and bridges.
The Minister used the occasion to express the government’s appreciation to the Japanese government for their assistance in the area of medicine, health and road infrastructure, adding that “Ghana is proud to be associated with Japan.”
On his part, Ambassador Hisanobu said the Japanese government was satisfied with the smooth implementation of various trunk road projects under the Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA). Japan is currently assisting Ghana with grant facilities of $91million and $68million to reconstruct the Motorway Roundabout into a three-tier interchange and the Assin Praso-Assin Foso road project, respectively.
