Maersk CEO affirms US$1.5bn commitment to grow Ghana port

The Maersk Group has reaffirmed its commitment to support the expansion of Ghana’s Port of Tema to the tune of US$1.5 billion, according to media reports out of the West African country.
According to the SpyGhana daily news site, this affirmation came from the CEO of the Maersk Group, Nils Smedegaard Andersen, during a visit to Ghana last week.
He reportedly also assured government that his company would contribute its quota in the US$6 billion oil exploration work to be undertaken by Italian firm Eni Exploration.
The Maersk Group’s subsidiary, APM Terminals, signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the government of Ghana in November last year to expand the Tema Port.
