    Ghana is pride of Africa – German President


    The President of Germany, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, has described Ghana as the pride of Africa and a beacon of stability on the continent.

    Speaking at a state dinner in his honour as part of his three-day state visit to Ghana, President Steinmeier said the entire world is proud of the many peaceful transitions witnessed in Ghana since the coming into force of the 1992 Fourth Republican Constitution, and particularly the resent transition that brought the current administration into office after the December 7, 2016 elections.

    He added that Ghana is currently playing a pivotal role on the global scene through the UN with President Akufo-Addo as Co-Chair of the UN Sustainable Development Goals’ (SDGs) group of eminent advocates.

    He assured the people of Ghana that Germany will continue to support her in all possible ways to create meaningful opportunities for job creation for the teeming youth of Ghana.

    Culture of Debate in Ghana

    The German leader expressed deep appreciation and admiration for the culture of open debate that exists in the country currently. He observed that maintaining the balance and making sure that everybody is heard in a democratic state is not always easy.

    However, President Steinmeier said Ghana has shown a clear example that it is ready to embrace inclusive growth through social cohesion.

    Ghana and German Relations

    On his part, President Akufo-Addo stated that Ghana and Germany have decided on a fresh start to the relationship that exists between the two countries. Going forward, the relationship would now be one of trade and economic cooperation rather than aid and financial assistance as has been in times past.

    He urged the strong business delegation visiting with the German leader to take advantage of all of the flagship programmes of his administration and seek partnerships.
