The Italian Deputy Minister responsible for Trade and Economic Development, Mr Carlo Calenda, made this known when he led a 14-member Italian government and business delegation to pay a recent courtesy call on the Vice-President, Mr Kwesi Amissah-Arthur, at the Flagstaff House.

Among the delegation were the Italian Ambassador to Ghana, Ms Laura Carpini; the Italian Minister of State at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mr Mario Giro, and the President of the Italian Trade Promotion Agency, Mr Riccardo Monti.

Recalling President Mahama’s visit to Italy in July, this year, Mr Calenda told the Vice-President that the President’s visit was successful, following the fruitful discussions that were held between him and the Italian Prime Minister.
Calenda said discussions between the two leaders centred on investment in the Pwalugu Tomato Factory in the Upper East Region and the reactivation of the western railway.

He equally said Ghana had untapped potential which the Italian government was ready to help exploit to open more business opportunities and create jobs for the further advancement of economic cooperation between the two nations.

Amissah-Arthur assured the team that Ghana’s economy was beginning to pick up and described their visit as timely, adding that the country was open to foreign direct investments (FDIs).
