Express press service

CHENNAI: There were no trumpets to announce the arrival of guests or flower-lined walkways for guests, but the Amir Mahal Great Hall lit up in golden light on Friday witnessed exchanges of warm hugs, smiles welcome and stories of progress from India and Ghana.

The ECOWAS Trade Commission reception hosted by Nawabzada Mohammed Asif Ali, Dewan of the Prince of Arcot, welcoming Kwaku Asomah Cheremeh, High Commissioner of Ghana to India, was a triumphant reflection of Indian culture, “Athithi devo bhava “. Treating each other with love and affection, honoring guests with garlands and silk shawls, explaining the similarities between the two countries and applauding the strong bond, the night turned into an eventful occasion for happy handshakes.

Overview of Ghana
Presenting the lesser known facts about the country, Indian Economic Trade Organization Chairman Asif Iqbal described Ghana as the best place for India to invest. He said: “There is much more to Ghana than gold and teak. It is also called the Dubai of Africa, due to its rich features. It has been the most politically stable country in West Africa for 32 years.

It also has a fair and transparent judicial system and ranks first for doing business in West Africa and fifth in the entire Africa region. Indian companies have invested in gold, bauxite, lithium, diamonds, crude oil and manganese. Mining leases are going to be offered and the ECOWAS Trade Commission office in Chennai will facilitate this. He also mentioned upcoming agricultural collaborations and joint infrastructure developments.

Partnership strengthening
To foster the idea of ​​collective self-sufficiency among its member states, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) was created in 1975. Today it is considered one of the pillars of the African economic community.

To enhance India-Ghana relations, the event also hosted the India Ghana Roundtable. The keynote speaker, Cheremeh, praised Chennai for its hospitality and gave an overview of the relations between the two countries from the beginning. He said, “India and Ghana are long-time friends and strategic partners.

The solid foundations of our bilateral relations were laid by India’s first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru and Ghana’s first President Kwame Nkrumah. The past decade has seen many activities and initiatives that have renewed the vitality of the India-Africa bond. When the COVID-19 pandemic pushed the world into the realm of socio-economic uncertainties, India’s cooperation with us further strengthened the bond. India has also set a global benchmark in battling the pandemic outbreak in such intense proportions.

According to the International Trade Centre, India is one of Ghana’s major trading partners, with a share of around 4.5% of Ghana’s exports. COVID-19 has highlighted the need for sustainable development, tackling climate change and water scarcity. Ghana and India need to improve new paths for the future and develop skills to deal with artificial intelligence by working together. At the end of the match, the Ghana officials were treated to a sumptuous Indian meal.
