US funds design of Accra air traffic control centre

The US Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) has provided funds of $322,560 to the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) to help draw up plans for the construction of an air traffic control centre at the Kotoka International Airport in Accra, Ghana's principal airport.

The agreement was signed on 29 March at the American embassy in Accra, which said the money would fund a technical assistance programme charged with producing designs for the control centre, as well as helping to identify the goods and services necessary for the project.

The technical assistance is to be provided by American transportation consulting firm LPA Group Inc.

The USTDA works to advance economic development, as well as US commercial interests, in developing and middle-income countries.
