The German Chancellor will hold bilateral discussions at the Jubilee House which will focus on efforts at Ghana’s economic resurgence and migration.

Among the issues to be discussed is security in the sub region and Ghana’s role in addressing it. Countries which will be in focus during the discussion will be Togo, Mali and Nigeria and the recent efforts of Ghana led by President Akufo-Addo in providing leadership to address the challenges.

Minister for Information designate Kojo Oppong Nkrumah announced at a press briefing yesterday that Chancellor Merkel would later participate in a panel discussion on Compact for Africa focusing on the areas of priority for partnership.

He explained that Ghana had been included in the Compact for Africa and about 100 million Euros is going towards energy and financial services as part of Government’s efforts to improve the situation in the aforementioned areas.

“Moving forward, it’s important to discuss the relationship around the compact and what next steps to take,” the minister designate stated.
