Napo tells America to support Africa to embark on the Transition Agenda

The Energy Minister, Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh, met with the United States Deputy Secretary, Department of Energy, Mr. David M. Turk on the sidelines of CERAWeek currently taking place in Houston, Texas.

Their discussions revolved around Ghana and USA Government cooperation in navigating Energy Transition and creating pathways for mutual interest in the energy sector.
