moree ghanaGhana's President Nana Akufo-Addo was present as construction works began on a mini-harbour and landing site at Moree in the central region

The project, which involves the construction of a breakwater, a quay wall, dredging and ancillary facilities, would have similar facility constructed at Senya Beraku, Dixcove, Elmina, Moree, Mumford, Winneba, Gomoa Fetteh, Teshie and Keta.

The project contractor, China Harbour and Engineering Company, is expected to complete the project in 18 months.

Addressing the people of Moree as part of his three-day tour of the central region, President Akufo-Addo said, “By November 2020, 70 per cent of the work would have been completed.”

Other ancillary facilities that will complement the fish landing site would include cold stores, ice-making plants, water supply and electricity supply, washing facilities and toilets, net mending sheds, as well as nursery and daycare facilities for the women.

“This has been a result of excellent collaboration between the Ministries for Transport and Fisheries. There are eleven fishing harbours all across the country and there are at least six of them designated for the Central Region alone. I appeal to you to accommodate the Chinese and make them feel welcome so that the work can progress steadily,” the President added.
