In his commitment to reducing housing deficit in Ghana, the Minister of Works and Housing, Francis Assenso Boakye paid a working visit to Morocco and held bilateral talks with the Moroccan Minister for National Territorial and Urban Planning, Housing and City Policy, Ms. Fatima Zahra Mansouri in Rabat to study their achievements in the area.
The meeting aimed at strengthening the ties of friendship and bonds of co-operation between the two countries.
“Over the years, the government of Morocco, through an effective partnership with the private sector has succeeded in providing affordable housing to its citizens.
The Akufo-Addo administration has started implementing similar strategy and we are hopeful that it will lead to the provision of mass affordable housing to meet the needs of low to middle-income earning Ghanaians”, Ghana’s Works and Housing Minister stated.
He said Ghana’s government and his ministry is working towards eradicating impediments facing Ghanaians in owning and living in decent, quality and affordable accommodation.
He said Morocco has a good record in housing development for Ghana to study in its quest to reduce the huge housing deficit
