Private companies in the United States of America say they will partner with local counterparts in Ghana to make important contributions to the energy and power sector in the country.
The companies, which were part of a US-Africa Trade Mission to explore opportunities in the energy and power sector, said they saw a lot of opportunities in the infrastructural sector of the country in general and energy in particular.
The US Assistant Secretary of State in the Bureau of African Affairs, Mr William Fitzgerald, said at the end of a two-day power trade mission to Ghana that “we came with an interesting variety of companies, some of which had been in the African continent for a long time, such as Chevron, Caterpillar and General Electric. We also have some SMEs that have never been to Africa, such as Energy International which is interested in expanding into Africa.”
