Dr Edward Omane Boamah, the Minister of Communications, has cut a sod for the construction of a $1.3 million One-Stop Service Center for the Ghana Postal Company.

The Center will provide an integrated administration service center for 20 government service providers including Ghana Post, Electricity Company of Ghana, Ghana Water Company, Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority, Ghana Immigration Service and Ghana Police and many others.

The Center is part of Government E-Government Platform Project which will connect and facilitate the easy access to information and communication for all government agencies.

Dr Boamah said the center would provide service for Ghanaians and enhance fast and professional delivery of business operations by the agencies.

He said the project was being funded from the e-Government Project facility from the China Exim Bank, adding that the government had allocated five million Ghana Cedis for the computerization part of the project.

Dr Boamah said the government was using the project to diversify the operations of the Ghana Postal Company and that expansion of the service center project to other post offices and the Regions would depend on the success of the first one.

Ms Alexandra Asante, District Manager of Ghana Post, Accra North, said the center would boost the operations of the Postal Services.

Mr Russell Xu, Managing Director of Huawei Technologies, Ghana, Contractors of the project, said the project was expected to be completed in two months.
