A range of game-changing infrastructure projects are set to reshape Ghana’s transport sector over the next half-decade, and 2019 should be a year of redoubled investment by the government. The country’s two main ports continue to expand, the budget for road development has increased by nearly 150%, the long-awaited transformation of the railway network is progressing and a new national airline is scheduled to join Accra’s new airport terminal. Public-private partnerships are central to this expansion, and local firms are joining a growing list of partners from Asia and Europe. The efforts of successive administrations to harness the expertise, technology and capital of domestic and foreign companies continue to bear fruit, and a commitment to improving transit systems as a key to unlocking broader economic growth should create further opportunities for private partners in 2019. This chapter contains an interview with Solomon Asamoah, CEO, Ghana Infrastructure Investment Fund.
