Transport ministry courts businesses into lake transport


Deputy Minister of Transport Joyce Mogtari has called on the private sector to invest in lake transport.

The Deputy Minister in an interview on 3FM’s Sunrise Morning show hosted by Winston Amoah stated that her ministry is working hard to ensure that they provide the necessary infrastructure and conducive environment for businesses to thrive in that sector.

“I always say that what is interesting about this country is that we are happy to invest in all sorts of endeavors but I have actually come to observe that lake transport hasn’t received that much attention from the private sector.

“As part of government’s public private policy agreement, we are working to encourage private participation which we believe will actually bring in the needed funds to acquire more ferries which I believe will ease the pressure on travelling on the lake.

She said the ministry is developing policies that will allow for deeper engagement and participation in the lake transport sector.

Government is also working to provide additional ferries on the Volta Lake, Joyce Mogtari said.
