The Deputy Minister of Lands and Natural Resources who also doubles as the Member of Parliament for Tarkwa Nsuaem Constituency Hon. George Mireku Duker together with Ghana’s Ambassador to Russia and other officials met officials of UC RUSAL, who have expressed interest to invest in the Bauxite sector in Ghana through the instrumentality of Hon Samuel A Jinapor (MP), Minister of Lands and Natural Resources.
UC RUSAL is a reputable Russian firm which is currently the second largest primary producer of Aluminum just behind China Hongqiao Group.
The firm runs operations along the value chain(Mining, Refinery Solution, Smelting and Production of finished goods) of the bauxite industry globally.
The meeting was to pave way for them to visit Ghana on December 6, 2021.
As Ghana Government is very determined to build robust intergrated bauxite industry, their planned visit is likely to see VALCO being revamped.
Ghana Intergrated Aluminium Development Corporation (GIADEC) is however, charged to lead the negotiation.
On behalf of Hon. Jinapor, I assured them of government’s commitment of creating enabling working environment for reputable investors in Ghana.
As a country, we will continue to engage to have a win win situation for both investors and government.
Whiles in Ghana, the UC RUSAL delegation will also visit the various bauxite-endowed areas, thus Awaso and Nyinahin in the Western-North and Ashanti Regions respectively as part of their investment tour.
Together, we will build a resilient Mining Industry. They said.
