Finance Minister, Dr. Mohammed Amin Adam has touted development projects in the Ashanti Region.

He made remarks on his visit to the Ashanti Regional Minister, Hon Simon Osei-Mensah on Tuesday as part of a working tour of the Ashanti Region.

During the visit, the Finance Minister praised the Regional Minister for being a strong advocate for development projects in the Ashanti Region.

He emphasized the importance of the region, noting that Kumasi is Ghana’s commercial hub and a business destination for people across the country.

“Your contribution to the development of the country cannot be overlooked,” the Finance Minister said.

He cited several major infrastructure projects underway in the region, including expansions of the Kumasi International Airport, and the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital Maternity Block, all in Kumasi. While these projects have faced delays, contractors continue working hard to complete construction, he noted.

“We thank you especially for your support and patience with this government as we have faced some challenges that have affected the timeline for finishing these critical projects,” he said.

The Finance Minister stated that his visit aims to see firsthand the progress of development projects the government has invested in across the Ashanti Region.
