This location places the Municipality at a strategic position – the central point between the Northern and Southern parts of the Eastern corridor of Ghana.

Similarly, strategic facilities of national importance aimed at wider coverage for both the southern and northern Ghana can be conveniently located in the Municipality to achieve the desired results. Being strategically located in the transitional zone, the Municipality has the advantage of experiencing mixed climatic conditions that has both positive and adverse implications for the Municipality’s development.
