30 November 2010
The Ghanaian minister of public works, Joe Gidisu, last Saturday announced the launch of the project to renew the Ho-Nyive-Shia-Honuta road which links Ghana to Togo.
The newspaper Republic of Togo reveals that the renovation works on this major route, a length of 30 km, should be completed within 18 months.
This project should enable the region's economic development to be stimulated by facilitating trade between the two countries.
The regional integration policy is supported by development partners such as the African Development Bank. Integration is essential to "build solid and diversified economies", it says on the website of the institution.
Last Saturday also saw the inauguration by Mauritanian President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz of a main road which links the road from Nouakchott Akjoujt to the region of Toujounine, via the region of Dar Naim, in Mauritania.
This road will contribute to the opening up of the northern quarters of both regions, reports the Agence Nouakchott d'Information.
