In line with this, he said, the ministry had a partnership agreement with Agu Resources to deliver the houses on a tract of land allocated by the Ministry at Amasaman.
Agu Resources has in turn put together a consortium of partners and investors from Korea and the United States.
He said buying the units would be open to the general public, as it was necessary for investors to be able to recoup their investment.
“It’s just a matter of completing some specific protocols, due diligence and compliance issues including environmental, social and financial protocols before we can finalise the paperwork,” said.
Christine Dadson, Director of Operations, Agu Resources, said the first phase of the project would deliver almost 3000 units. She said everything had been put in place including local contractors and design team who would be working on the project, adding that it would provide employment for many Ghanaians.
“We are going to ensure that as many Ghanaians as possible are included in the project and also ensure the highest quality using innovative technology” she said.
