Eight new Ghanaian envoys have been charged by President Akufo-Addo to put the interest of Ghana first during their duty tour in their respective countries of designation.
Addressing the newly sworn in Ghanaian envoys at a ceremony at the Flagstaff House, President Akufo-Addo reminded the appointees that they are the most visible symbol of the country and must therefore guide the image of Ghana jealously.
Attraction of Foreign Direct Investments
The President also reminded the eight envoys to remember that the attraction of foreign direct investments from the countries where they have been designated to is key to the development of the private sector of the country. He therefore urged the High Commissioners and Ambassadors alike to make the attraction of such investments top on their list of priorities.
The eight envoys whose agreements have been received by the President between 16th October and 5th December 2017 are: Emmanuel Enos, State of Qatar; Francis Abakah, Sierra Leone; Ernest-Burke Asare-Aseidu, Republic of Liberia; Yahaya Iddi Ahmed Rafai, State of Kuwait; Hannah Ama Narko, State of Israel; Joseph Kwaku Antwi, Democratic Republic of Congo; Perpetual O. Dufu, Republic of Angola and Sayuti Yahaya Iddi, Islamic Republic of Iran.
