The U.K. government plans to provide a total of 375 million pounds ($601 million) in aid to Ghana through 2014, according to the head of the U.K. Department for International Development office in the African country.
U.K. assistance to Ghana in the coming years will focus on education, health, governance and economic growth, among other sectors, Sally Taylor said during a presentation on March 29 at the British High Commission in Accra, according to Ghana Business News.
The United Kingdom will provide 85 million pounds to Ghana in 2011-12, 90 million pounds in 2012-13 and 100 million pounds in 2013-14, the newspaper says, citing a fact sheet from DfID’s Ghana country office.
