The Minister for Information Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has disclosed that President Akufo-Addo’s visit to Japan on Monday 10th December 2018 is expected to further deepen Ghana-Japan trade ties which have been strong in recent years.
The President will arrive in Japan on Monday for a three day official visit.
Mr. Nkrumah told the Sunday Press briefing in Takoradi that the bulk of the President’s meetings will focus on the industrial giants of Japan in an effort to strengthen trade relations and deepen efforts at attracting more Japanese FDI and knowledge transfer to Ghana.
“The President will also specifically be at the GIPC – Jethro business seminar to make a strong case for Japanese businesses to situate in Ghana under the 1D1F program” he said.
He told reporters that in recent months the President’s International visits have yielded dividends for Ghana including the recent announcement of automobile companies that are setting up in Ghana in 2019.
“It is our expectation that this visit as well will yield further dividends for the Ghanaian business community” the information minister added.
