President Nana Akufo-Addo has cut the sod for the commencement of phase two of the redevelopment project of the Kumasi Central Market and the provision of associated infrastructure.

He indicated that the start of the second phase of the project in addition to numerous projects ongoing in Asantemen and across the country demonstrates government’s unwavering commitment to deliver significant infrastructure projects.

The President was speaking at the groundbreaking ceremony on Thursday at Kejetia.

“The redevelopment of the Kumasi Central Market is a €248 million project, and it is being financed by Deutsche Bank of Germany, with export credit guarantee from the United Kingdom Export Finance (UKEF),” he said.

The project will be undertaken by Messrs Contracta Construction Ltd, a UK-based company and will be finished within 48 months.
