In order to develop a strong integrated aluminium sector in Ghana, Mr. Samuel Abu Jinapor, the Minister of Lands and Natural Resources, has urged the investor community to take into account the country’s democratically stable environment.

At Miami, Florida, where the Fast Markets Bauxite and Aluminium Conference is now taking place, Mr. Jinapor stated that the Akufo-Addo-led Government is still dedicated to making Ghana the mining hub of Africa and using mining as the engine for sustainable development.

He declared, “We will continue to engage pertinent stakeholders for the sake of the people of Ghana.

The Ghana Bauxite Company (GBC), the only remaining bauxite mine in the nation, and the Ghana Integrated Aluminum Development Corporation (GIADEC) were mentioned briefly by the Minister, who also emphasised the prospects for investment in those organisations.

He pointed out, for instance, that the GBC had been positioned as a cornerstone of Ghana’s integrated aluminium industry through strategic partnerships and investment and had the ability to produce over five million metric tonnes of bauxite yearly.

Mr. Jinapor had emphasised the need to increase the value of Ghana’s mineral resources during a GIADEC workshop on the downstream aluminium sector held in Akosombo in order to secure maximum benefit.

According to the Minister, Ghana’s mineral resources, such as gold, bauxite, iron ore, lithium, and other green minerals, which actively contribute to socioeconomic development through value addition, are being aggressively pursued by the government since 2017.
