Mr Michael Cobblah, Chief Executive Officer of C-NERGY Global Holdings, an investment consortium, called on planners and engineers in the metropolitan, municipal and districts assemblies (MMDAs) to engage the private sector in advancing development at the local level.

He said: “With the level of discourse and interaction during the break out , it is evident that you can make the desired changes in your districts through PPP. ”

Mrs Magdelene Apenteng, Head of the Public Investment Division of the Ministry of Finance said: “The next time we meet… it would be an investor conference to showcase projects developed and possible areas of partnerships. ”

She said the door of the Division is opened to the MMDAs for any technical assistance.

Mrs Apenteng said bridging the country’s infrastructure gap is imperative in advancing the development, but government alone cannot do it hence the need for private investment in the sector. GNA
