“It’s a great day for Ghana!” said Ghanaian President Nana
Akufo-Addo. “I was here last year and I’m back this year to make sure the
project moves forward.”
“This proves how important the AfricaInvestment Forum is.
The signing of this agreement is on track to improve the lives of our citizens,”
Ghana’s President said.
The Accra Skytrain project, representing an investment of
$2.6 billion, is a high-capacity public transport system that is completely
automated and cost-efficient, using pneumatic propulsion technology.
According to a statement from AfDB, the system will
transport more than 380,000 passengers annually and create some 5,000 jobs
during its implementation phase.
