Presidents of Ghana and Portugal, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, signed bilateral agreements to cooperate in trade, political dialogue, and defense.

President Akufo-Addo claimed that this most recent kind of connection would significantly deepen Ghana and Portugal’s relationship and cooperation.

On Tuesday, July 18, 2023, in Lisbon, Portugal, during a press conference together with Prez Marcelo Rebelo De Sousa, the president said that the decision “is borne out of a decision by Ghana “to turn our back on our old economy, which has been dependent on the production and export of raw materials, as well as dependent on aid.”

He emphasized that the discussions also centered on strengthening future multilateral political, cultural, and people-to-people exchanges and cooperation, as well as on the necessity of advancing a better world by addressing global issues related to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

This is why, according to him, “we have noted with satisfaction the value that the Ghana-Portugal Business Forum will offer to our investment plans.”

Following the Portugal Forum, he will visit Italy to serve as the keynote speaker at the 4th ECAM Annual Conference, which will take place from July 23 to 24, 2023. While there, he will meet with Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni to address matters of shared interest between the two nations.
