He said some of the investment opportunities in Kumasi were accommodation for workers, hostel facilities for the various universities in the city especially Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).

    Mayor Osei Assibey Antwi also said in view of the increasing number of vehicles in the city coupled with the Kejetia, Central Market Redevelopment Project, the city was in dire need of a car park which would accommodate the numerous cars of both traders and customers in the city.
