ACCRA, Denmark’s Queen Margrethe II is to pay a two-day State visit to Ghana from Nov 23 to 24 at the invitation of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the Danish Embassy here said Monday.
The visit would emphasise and consolidate the long-standing and well-established relations between Ghana and Denmark while at the same time marking the gradual transition from aid to trade, the embassy said in a statement.
Queen Margrethe, who would be officially received by President Akufo-Addo, would be accompanied by a delegation of representatives of the government, Danish companies and business organizations to strengthen relations and bilateral ties.
During the visit, the two heads of State would participate in a business conference which would be held under the theme: Ghana: An Emerging Market within Reach, the statement added,
The conference would focus on three priority sectors — agriculture; sustainability and maritime; infrastructure and railways, where Denmark has the skills to help Ghana.
Denmark, through its Danish International Development Agency’s development co-operation, has for many years helped develop key sectors and institutions in Ghana.
With Ghana’s graduation to a middle-income country and the prospects of sustainable economic growth, Denmark is gradually transitioning from development cooperation to trade cooperation in line with the visions of Ghana, the statement said.
