"A city where tradition fuses with modernity"

"A city where TRADITION fuses with MODERNITY"

From the beginning of time, infrastructure development has been the key to economic growth. From the pyramids at Giza to Mansa Musa's Malian empire of over 400 cities, the wealth of nations has been marked by infrastructure development. Over the last 20 years, economic growth has lifted more than 660 million people out of poverty and raised the income levels of millions more, but this growth has often come at the expense of the environment and the local culture. Akuakrom Development Project is a green growth initiative founded on the ideology that a healthy planet, a quality standard of living, and a rich historical culture is every generation's birthright.
