Appolonia City, Greater Accra’s new city, has been commended by the UK-Ghana Chamber of Commerce (UKGCC) for its vision and investment in high-quality infrastructure.
UKGCC’s commendation came during a familiarisation tour of the master-planned city by its members.
The delegation, which included representatives from G&J Technical Services, Movenpick Ambassador Hotel, Global Trade Consult and executives of the UKGCC, visited the various neighbourhoods within Appolonia City, the power substation and Appolonia Industrial Park.
“This tour has been an eye-opener for all of us concerning Appolonia City,” said Adjoba Kyiamah, Executive Director of UKGCC. “Participants of the tour were highly impressed with Appolonia City’s unmatched infrastructure and thoroughly satisfied with the variety of properties available.”
