President John Mahama has reopened Ghana’s mission in Ankara, two years after Turkey also re-opened its mission in Accra.
The reopening of the chancery is one major assignment President Mahama has undertaken since he arrived in that country yesterday for a three day state visit.
The two countries have had a long standing history of bilateral relations and the opening of the Chancery is intended to deepen this relationship.
President Mahama said this will boost trade relations especially between the two countries.
President Mahama also met with the Ankara Chamber of Industry reminding them that Ghana remains the best hub to reach the rest of the African market.
Addressing the gathering, President Mahama said Ghana, a peaceful and stable democratic country in Africa, offers immense investment opportunities in infrastructure development, oil and gas, agro-processing, power generation and pharmaceuticals.
“Visit Ghana and see for yourselves the opportunities for investment that are available”, President Mahama stated.
Both the outgoing Foreign Minister Mohammed Mumuni and the sector minister-designate Hannah Tetteh were present at the ceremony.
President Mahama will later co-chair bilateral discussions between the two countries and also meet with the Prime Minister of Turkey.
