Mrs Claudia Quintero Torbay, Colombian Ambassador to Ghana, has described Ghana as a friendly destination for Colombia investors and partners in development.

Briefing the media at the Colombian Embassy in Accra, to welcome Colombian investors in solar technology, she impressed on them to come to Ghana and explore opportunities and invest as part of efforts to deepen bilateral relations between the two countries.

Mrs Torbay said the delegation was in Ghana to promote an alternative lighting system based on recycled plastic bottles, a new technology used in diverse fields for sustainable development.

She expressed the hope that the project would provide job opportunities for the youth, and improve the living conditions of the people in the rural areas.

She said the initiative dubbed: “Ghana-Colombia, Litre of Light for Peace Project” is a solution already being implemented in Colombia and replicated in Latin-American and some African countries including Ghana.”

Mr Iiiac Angilo Diaz, Executive Director of Global Expansion Solar Bottle Buld experts, and leader of the solar technology investors said: “We do not believe that one non-governmental organization can be a corner of change, hence the need to choose Ghana as our door way to West Africa.

“It is a dream to be here to work in Ghana to partner the rural people, share knowledge of what we can teach and learn from to bring hope to them by lightening up their lives and homes through fixing the solar bottle bulb to generate light,” he said.

Mr Diaz said four villages in Ghana had been identified for the pilot installation; they are Mayikpor in the Ga West District, Deigo in Akuapim South, Kontoma in the Offinso district and Komfokrom in the Obuasi Districts, which were not connected to the national grid.

Mr Diaz said materials required for the production could be found everywhere and expressed the hope that the project would impact greatly on Ghana’s electricity crisis.
