Construction has begun on an annex to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration building in Accra, Ghana. The project is estimated to cost US$20 million and will be completed in about 26 months. 

The Chinese government provided a grant to fund the work. Contractor Yanjian Group Company will collaborate with Ghanaian consultant Masaub Consults on the project.

The total construction area of the project comprises approximately 11,300 square metres, with six floors above ground and an underground level. The facilities being built include the minister's office area, conference hall, press room, banquet hall, parking lot, gymnasium, clinic, stores and an archives room.

The Chinese government also funded the ministry's existing building after its earlier premises were destroyed by fire.
