President János Áder visited a sewage treatment plant built with Hungarian technology in Kumasi, Ghana’s second largest city, on Saturday.
The plant, built one and a half years ago amidst difficult circumstances posed by the pandemic, has capacity to treat the sewage of households with two million people, Áder said after viewing the facility.
He said clean water is essential for further development in Africa including Ghana.
“Without clean water it would be impossible to provide for the population, improve the agricultural and the industrial sector and to prevent diseases,” the president said.
Áder said Ghana expressed satisfaction over the plant, adding that the implementation of another two joint investment projects were planned.
Áder started an eight-day visit to Ghana and Kenya on January 12. He is the first Hungarian president to visit Ghana since 1989.
