Ghana: prices stablise in Northern Region
Published: 06 June 2014


Cement prices in the Northern Regional capital of Tamale, Ghana, have now stabilised, according to local press reports.

Until recently, a bag of cement was being sold at between GHS28 (US$9) and GHS30 (US$10) in the Tamale Township. However, prices have now evened-out across the board, with a bag of cement now selling at GHS28.

A shortage of supply of cement products, which has slowed down infrastructural development at all levels in the Tamale Metropolis, is being attributed to imported cement dominating the supply chain. (Source: Ghana Web).
