Ghana is to get new premises for the ministry of foreign affairs and regional integration. The new complex will be located on the site of the former International Students Hostel opposite Accra’s Kotoka international airport.
Construction is due to begin over the next few months and is expected to take two years at a cost of $14.65 million. It has been made possible thanks to an agreement with the Chinese government.
The foreign ministry is currently operating out of the administrative and general service wings of Golden Jubilee House, Ghana’s presidential palace, on a temporary basis after its old offices were destroyed by fire in October 2009.
