Ghana is in the process of constructing the Tema Information Communication Technology Park, which includes 52 buildings, all of which contain 8-10 floors. This ICT Park is intended for “local and international investors and entrepreneurs,” and will create 500 ICT jobs for young people.

Ato Sarpong, the country’s Deputy Minister for Communications, recently publicly discussed the project, which is the result of a MOU between Ghana and Mauritius. The project will take another 2-4 years to complete and will cost GH 200,000,000, with Ghana providing “the land facilities, incentives, legal binding sand the amenities” and Mauritius making a monetary contribution.

Both governments are also pleased with the project’s progress so far.
