President János Áder has visited a sewage treatment plant built with Hungarian technology in Kumasi, Ghana’s second largest city. The plant, built a year and a half ago amidst difficult circumstances posed by the pandemic, has capacity to treat the sewage of households with two million people.
After viewing the facility on Saturday, the president said clean water was essential for further development in Africa including Ghana. “Without clean water it would be impossible to provide for the population, improve the agricultural and the industrial sector and to prevent diseases,” the president said. President Áder said Ghana expressed satisfaction over the plant, adding that the implementation of another two joint investment projects were planned. President Áder started an eight-day visit to Ghana and Kenya on January 12. He is the first Hungarian president to visit Ghana since 1989.
