ANGELA MERKEL BEGINS FOUR-DAY VISIT TO GHANA THURSDAY

ACCRA– German Chancellor Angela Merkel arrives in Accra Thursday for a four-day visit to Ghana aimed at strengthening bilateral relations and promoting trade between the two countries.

The Chancellor will be accompanied by a high-ranking German business delegation to explore business and investment opportunities between the two countries. As part of the visit, German Industry and Commerce in Ghana (AHK Ghana) will host a business dialogue to facilitate an exchange on the prevailing business environment in Ghana.

Ghana has had a long historical relationship with Germany ever since official contacts were established after Ghana’s Independence in 1957. Ghana has enjoyed more than 50 years of bilateral relations with Germany since independence. The nature of relations between the two countries has gradually improved also.

The good relations between Ghana and Germany has led to beneficial ties in the areas of trade and investment, educational exchange programmes and socio-cultural activities. The two nations have also maintained close and intensive political relations.

Ghana is a key partner for Germany in West Africa and the State visit of Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier to Ghana in December 2017 was a high point in German-Ghana relations.

Since taking office, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo had met twice with Merkel — in June 2017 on the occasion of the Group of 20 Africa (G20) Conference in Berlin and in February this year while on an official visit to Germany to attend economic conferences in Dortmund and Berlin.
