Benefits of a Project Finance Approach to Infrastructure Development in Ghana: The Need to Adopt a Public Private Partnership Model

Karikari Amoa-Gyarteng


This article sheds light on the extent to which private entities partake in the provision of transport infrastructure to the Ghanaian public.
