Hunger in the world – Italy & Ghana deeply involved

Ghanaian President John Mahama’s recent visit to Rome on Tuesday provided an opportunity for a reaffirmation of the resolute involvement of his country in the world “Zero Hunger” campaign. Along with the President of the Italian National Assembly, Mrs Laura Boldrini, John Dramani Mahama was a guest of the World Food Programme (WFP), at the Rome headquarters of this United Nations institution. It was an occasion for Italy and Ghana, two economic partners with a very close relationship, to once again declare their full commitment to the battle to eradicate hunger from the world.

The Ghanaian Head of State made a point of highlighting how the Ebola virus was starting to impact on food security in the sub-Region.Although Ghana is currently free of this kind of virus, President Mahama felt obliged to refer to the fact that Ghana cannot be expected to continue with its strong economic growth in a Region where two or three of its neighbours also happen to be those most seriously affected by the epidemic. Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea are only separated from Ghana by Ivory Coast. Its economy is therefore seriously exposed. Closing the borders may look like a measure to counter the spread of the disease, but it also appears as a brake on the growth of inter-Regional trade between economies which are so closely linked.
