President Nana Akufo-Addo said Thursday Ghana was ready for a renewed relationship with Paris after French President Emmanuel Macron paid a day’s working visit to Ghana.

“We want our relations with France to be characterised by an increase in trade and investment co-operation, not aid,” the President said.

This, according to the President “is the way to develop healthy relations between our two countries, and put Ghana at the high end of the value chain in the global market place, and create jobs for the teeming masses of Ghanaians, particularly the youth. Our vision is to build a free, prosperous, independent country, a Ghana Beyond Aid.”

According to him, his administration wants to "build a value-added, industrialised economy with a modernised agriculture, which is neither victim nor pawn of the world economic order.”

Long ties

President Akufo-Addo noted that Ghana and France have strong ties in trade, investments, civil and security co-operation.

He said statistics indicate that French investments in Ghana totalled €1.5 billion in 2015, making Ghana the seventh-biggest destination of French investments in sub-Saharan Africa.

Nonetheless, the President believes that “we can improve on this. To this end, my government has put in place measures to make Ghana the most business-friendly economy in Africa. These measures are aimed at attracting investment into Ghana, as well as stimulating growth of the private sector.”
