The Ghana Institution of Engineering (GhIE) launched the 2022/23 Ghana Infrastructure Report Score Card at the Engineering Centre, Roman Ridge, Accra, on Friday, May 6, 2022.
The Executive Director of GhIE, Ing. D.K. Nyante, in his welcome address expressed the institution’s delight to launch the 2022/23 Ghana Infrastructure Report Score Card, saying, a country which does not take inventory of its key infrastructure is impoverished with unemployment, lack of development and create shortage of basic social amenities. He therefore called on development partners to support this good cause to make this infrastructure audit a biannual affair. He recalled that the last infrastructure report card was done in 2016 for Energy, Transportation and Water infrastructure. These infrastructures were rated D3, which meant poor, and therefore those infrastructure needed quite a lot of intervention.
The president of GhIE, Ing.Prof. Charles Anum Adams also added that good infrastructure is capable of eradicating poverty from the country. It is therefore very necessary to periodically audit the country’s key infrastructure to meet the increasing population rate. He then entreated all members of the institution and the general public to champion this effort.

Ing. Magnus Lincoln Quashie as Chairman,
Ing Dr. Michael Ankamah Bekoe – Co-Chair/Coordinator, Ing
