Ghana and Qatar opened a technical committee meeting here on Monday to discuss ways to further strengthen ties of cooperation between the two countries in all spheres.
The meeting is expected to enable officials from both countries identify areas of convergence and work towards the early implementation of agreements and memorandums of understanding (MOUs) signed during the Emir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani’s visit to Ghana last December.
Addressing the delegation, Ghana’s deputy minister for Youth and Sports Pius Enam Hadzide said Ghana has instituted favorable investment climate which provides adequate and inbuilt protective mechanisms for the average investor, encouraging the Qatari delegation to take advantage of the various investment opportunities Ghana has to offer for a rewarding business partnership.
He urged members of both sides to come out with a roadmap towards the fulfillment of the collective commitment to a meaningful cooperation between Ghana and Qatar engendered by the political will demonstrated at the highest levels.
The leader of the Qatari delegation Ahmed Ibrahim Al-Abdulla, Assistant Director of African Affairs at the Qatari Ministry of Foreign Affairs hopes the deliberations would be fruitful.
Ghana enjoys cordial and fruitful relations with the State of Qatar.
These relations have been further enhanced by recent developments such as the opening of Ghana’s resident diplomatic mission in Doha, the expected opening of Qatar’s embassy in Accra, and the political will on both sides as well as the prospects for increased cooperation in various areas. Enditem
