GIS – 28 June 2018: The High Commissioner of the Republic of Ghana, Mr George Ayisi-Boateng, called on the Prime Minister, Minister of Home Affairs, External Communications and National Development Unit and Minister of Finance and Economic Development, Mr. Pravind Kumar Jugnauth, today, at the New Treasury Building in Port Louis.
In a statement, Mr Ayisi-Boateng underlined that the meeting with the Prime Minister was cordial and discussions focused on how the Republic of Mauritius can use its expertise to help rejuvenate the agriculture sector in Republic of Ghana, in particular with regards to the production of sugarcane.
He pointed out that the Republic of Ghana took a loan and built a sugar factory but it is not being used. In this respect, Mauritian investors have to be drawn to the Republic of Ghana as they have the expertise in sugarcane production and can lend a helping hand in that field. The outcome, he observed, will be a reduction of imports in the area of sugar for the Republic of Ghana.
The High Commissioner added that the Prime Minister’s response was very positive and he expects the collaboration between the two countries to bear fruitful results.
