Mr. Elvis Afriyie Ankrah, the Deputy Minister of Local Government, says the Ahanta West District Assembly is collaborating with the Korean International Co-operation Agency (KOICA), to undertake the second phase of the Strategic Action Land Development (SALD) plan, to create about 20,000 to 30,000 jobs in five years time.


He explains that the project when completed will boost infrastructure in the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis, adding “government will perform its part of the deal to ensure the implementation of the project which will benefit the people of the Ahanta West District and country as a whole”.

 Mr. Ankrah made this known in Accra, during a presentation of the inception report on the project, which forms the basis of the implementation of the entire plan, to the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development.

 Mr. Kwaak Young Hoon, the Leader of the Consulting Group from KOICA in charge of the project, on his part promised that the Korean Embassy will ensure Korea’s further support to Ghana towards the actual implementation of the project.
