Joint Declaration on Ghana-EU Cooperation on Migration

On 16 April 2016, a High Level Dialogue (HLD) meeting on migration was held in Accra between Ghana and the European Union (EU). Ms Hanna Tetteh, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ghana and Mr Prosper D.K. Bani, Minister for the Interior, met Mr. Bert Koenders, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands, who was visiting Ghana on behalf of the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice-President of the European Commission, Federica Mogherini. The EU and Ghana have long-standing political, cooperation and trade relations framed by the agreements between the EU and the ACP countries. The Cotonou Agreement provides a comprehensive, balanced and deep political dialogue and enhanced cooperation guided by the fundamental principles of ownership and joint responsibility, respect for human rights, good governance, democratic principles and the rule of law. The High Level Dialogue meeting in Accra follows the Africa-EU Valletta Summit on Migration in November 2015, the Meeting on the Implementation of the Valletta Action Plan by ECOWAS Member States in February 2016 and recent technical and preparatory meetings between Ghana and the EU.
