Geography

The White Volta passes through the town; making it an important terminus point. There are few rapids on the eastern end of the river towards Akosombo. As a result, navigation is possible; the Yapei Queen Ship, which is a cargo ship sails from Akosombo with petrol and other convenience food stuffs up to the Yapei port.

Economy

The presence of limestone has attracted cement companies; SAVACEM, to set up cement production manufacturing plants in Yapei. The BOST (Bulk Oil Storage and Transport) company of Ghana has also built petrol reservoirs in Yapei where petrol and other products are transported via pipeline transport and pipes from Juapong up to Bupei and then carted by lorries to Bolgatanga and Wa.
