Ghana’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey voiced commitment to renew bilateral cooperation between Ghana and Tunisia to set a new agenda for holistic development.
“The commitment will deepen engagement at all levels, particularly within the area of economic cooperation”, she said in a statement issued by the Ministry.
The Minister’s two-day visit to Tunisia is a response to an invitation of Tunisian Minister for Foreign Affairs Khemaies Jhinaoui.
The Ghanaian Minister stressed the importance of her visit to Tunisia, affirming the commitment to contribute to the establishment of developed and privileged relations in the future, particularly in the economic and trade fields, as she meets President Beji Caid Essebsi.
Tunisia and Ghana have promising potentials both bilaterally and within the framework of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), which Tunisia joined as an observer member in July 2017, she said.
In a statement to media, Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey also placed emphasis on the importance of intensifying the exchange of visits between businessmen from both countries and stimulating the private sector in order to boost trade and investment, explore new areas of partnership in the health, tourism, air and maritime sectors and develop scientific and technological cooperation, an area of great importance for Ghana.
