Guyana/Ghana sign several agreements to improve relations
Guyana and Ghana on Tuesday signed several agreements intended to further cement relations between the two countries.
Vice President Dr Bharrat Jagdeo participated in the signing ceremony which was also spearheaded by Ghana’s Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia.
The agreements signed are: a framework agreement on cooperation between Guyana and Ghana; a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the Ministry of Natural Resources and the Petroleum Commission of Ghana on cooperation in the petroleum sector of Guyana.
Additionally, a MoU on mutual cooperation in investment promotion between the Guyana Office For Investment (Go-Invest) and Ghana Investment Promotion Center.
Tuesday’s activity culminated the four-day visit by the Ghanaian Vice President and his delegation.
On Sunday, during a state dinner, President Irfaan Ali welcomed what he said was an acceleration of bilateral relations in recent months.
Dr. Ali assured that the visit was not just another bilateral engagement, but rather a strategic one with measured outcomes.
It started when Dr. Ali met with Ghanian President Nana Akufo-Addo on the sidelines of the last United Nations General Assembly; immediately after a timetable of action was established, which also saw Vice-President Bharrat Jagdeo visiting Ghana.
