Dutch PM Arrives in Ghana

Dutch Prime Minister Mr Mark Rutte arrived in Accra Wednesday night to begin a two-day State visit to Ghana.

He was met on arrival by Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawamia at the Jubilee Lounge at the Kotoka International Airport.

This is the first time a Dutch leader has visited Ghana.

His presence in Ghana is expected to bolster relations and bilateral ties existing between Ghana and the Netherlands.

Mr Rutte's visit precedes that of the French President, Emmanuel Macron, who is expected in Ghana on Thursday.

Both leaders attended the 5th AU-EU Summit in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire, at which both Continents seek to define and strengthen relation for their mutual benefit.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo who also attended the Summit is expected back in Ghana today.

He would meet with both Mr Rutte and Mr Macon at the Presidency, hold talks with them centred on trade and investment and later host them both to lunch.

Whilst in Ghana, Mr Rutte would interact with the Ghanaian business community and visit Dutch businesses in the country.
