The newly appointed High Commissioner of the Republic of Ghana to Mauritius, Mr Charles Asuako Owiredu, has invited PM Pravind Jugnauth to cement Mauritius-Ghana ties as well as to further strengthen bilateral collaboration.
Mauritius and Ghana, he said after meeting the PM, have signed several agreements in the past, including Double Taxation Avoidance and Bilateral Air Services Agreements.
He stated that the central banks of both countries have also signed an MoU to ease the difficulties that businesses face and promote people to people contact.
High Commissioner Owiredu lauded Mauritius’s assistance to Ghana for the hosting of the African Continental Free Trade Area Secretariat and for its election to the United Nations Security Council.
Mauritius, he said, was one of the first countries to have supported Ghana in these endeavours.
Likewise, he added, Ghana will continue to back Mauritius on the issue of sovereignty of the Chagos Archipelago.
He indicated that the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting to be held in Rwanda will be a great occasion for both countries to discuss new opportunities and maximise on the potential of Mauritius in the financial services sector.
