The deal will focus on technical, financial, and developmental aspects.

“We are partnering with EKI Energy because of their experience, so they can guide us and drive strong development in the sector,” said Agyepong.

Besides the billion-dollar deal, Agyepong also announced scholarships for 10 people who want to study climate change this year, showing his commitment to developing future leaders in the field.

Jospong Group started as a printing press in 1995, and has grown into a diversified holdings company that operates in 14 sectors of the economy.
