UK Minister tours North England with Ghanian High Commissioner

Mark Simmonds, MP and UK Minister for Africa tours North England with Ghana’s High Commissioner Victor Emmanuel Smith.

His Excellency Victor Emmanuel Smith, Ghana’s High Commissioner to UK & Ireland has called on UK Businesses to deepen their trade and investment relations with Africa, particularly Ghana for their mutual benefit.

The High Commissioner made this call when he accompanied Hon. Minister Mark Simmonds, MP, and Minister for Africa on a three day tour of the North of England: Manchester, Leeds and Newcastle.

The tour was organized from 22nd to 24th of July 2014 by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO), UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) and other UK Government Agencies. Its objective was to dialogue with local businesses and highlight the enormous opportunities Africa offer in supporting the delivery of UK and Africa’s growth agenda.
This was against the background of Britain’s High Level Prosperity Partnership Agreement with Ghana and four other African countries last year, aimed at strengthening economic cooperation and anchored in the belief that the highest level of economic development can be achieved by working together in partnership and leveraging expertise across governments and businesses in the UK and Africa. It is in pursuit of this agreement that the Minister, accompanied by the Ghanaian and Tanzanian High Commissioners, undertook this trip with officials of the UKTI and DFID.
