Gov't Committed To Ensuring Conducive Investment Environment
The Minister for Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, Alhaji Mohammed Mumuni, yesterday, reiterated government’s commitment to ensuring that there was always a conducive environment for all investors.
According to Alhaji Mumuni, international bodies like the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) had recognised Ghana’s economy as one of the fastest growing economies in the world.
These were contained in an address delivered by Alhaji Mumuni at a bilateral meeting between his Ministry and the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Accra, yesterday.
The meeting, which was attended by a delegation from Denmark, included businessmen and was expected to strengthen the existing relationship between Ghana and Denmark, especially in the areas of trade.
Ghana’s Foreign Minister said Denmark was a key partner in the efforts to enhance the living conditions of the people and contributed to Ghana’s shared growth and development agenda.
He expressed delight at the inclusion of the businessmen in the delegation with the hope that they would do more business in the country.
In an address, the Danish Minister of Foreign Affairs, H E Villy Sovndal, said that Denmark was willing to explore more areas of collaboration with Ghana.
Mr Souvndal lauded Ghana for its democratic credentials, adding that the country was known globally as one of the countries in the world with a good tradition of handing over power peacefully.
He expressed the hope that the two countries would extend their co-operation towards enhancing democracy in the region.
H.E. Villy Sovndal, however, bemoaned the complexity of the situation in the Sahel region which, he said, had been characterised by the violation of human rights, drug trafficking, piracy on the Gulf of Guinea and terrorism attacks.
