President Akufo-Addo - GIADEC will ensure value-addition to bauxite to prevent raw exports

Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, President of the Republic of Ghana, has stated that the Ghana Integrated Aluminium Development Corporation (GIADEC), has strategically been established by government to add value to the country’s raw bauxite resources in order to phase out the raw export of the natural resource in the short to medium term.

He made the assertion when he addressed participants of a two-day Natural Resource Stakeholders’ Dialogue at the Kempinski Gold Coast Hotel on Thursday, 11 May 2023 under the theme: ‘Harnessing our Natural Resources Responsibly for our Sustainable Collective Good.’


The Ghana Integrated Aluminium Development Corporation (GIADEC), commenced operations in 2019, and the corporation is working to ensure value addition across the full value chain of aluminium production.

GIADEC is driving the development of mining, refining to produce alumina, and smelting to produce primary aluminium, and ultimately, to develop a downstream aluminium industry in Ghana. The projects were officially launched in September 2021 by President Akufo-Addo.
