More wastewater treatment plants could be built in Ghana. During the visit of President János Áder to Ghana and in his presence, a cooperation agreement was signed between the Pureco-Unit Consortium and the Jospong Group of Companies.
As a result of the ongoing successful professional and technical Ghanaian-Hungarian cooperation and fruitful dialogue, the Pureco-Unit Consortium is building two additional wastewater treatment plants in Ghana (in Takoradi and Tamale), which will be completed this autumn.
The success of these projects is demonstrated by the fact that the President's visit not only included a presentation of the Kumasi WWTP, but also the signing of a cooperation agreement between the Pureco-Unit Consortium and the Jospong Group of Companies for the construction of further wastewater treatment plants in Ghana.

These new developments will address the independent management of municipal liquid waste in the project areas, improve the health of millions more people's daily lives, reduce surface and groundwater pollution and illnesses caused by contaminated drinking water, improve sanitation and significantly reduce the country's ecological footprint, thereby contributing significantly to Africa's contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

We are very proud to be able to prove our professionalism in new locations in Africa! In the long run, these projects will contribute to the growth of the export market of the Hungarian water industry, to the awareness and recognition of Hungarian expertise. Furthermore, it gives access to further potential markets, to the exploitation of Hungarian expertise in the whole African region, leading to further cooperation agreements and projects. Exportoriented enterprises abroad, as well as interest-bearing capital inflows, benefit the national economy, both in terms of the paid domestic taxes and in terms of high value-added products and services.
