UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has lauded the contribution of Ghanaians to the success of the UK as he paid a courtesy call on President Nana Akufo-Addo.

“As you know I used to be mayor of London and in our great city we were fortunate beneficiaries of many Ghanaians who contributed massively to our society. We have several MPs in the UK of Ghanaian extraction as you may know and it is a huge pleasure to be able to congratulate you personally, on your triumph and to see your government fluidly underway to meet on the challenges the people of Ghana want you to meet,” he stated in a meeting at the Flagstaff House on Wednesday, February 15.

Mr Johnson indicated that the UK was seeking stronger ties with Ghana to enable British firms invest in various sectors of the economy.

“We hope to have an even deeper friendship going forward and particularly we want to make sure that British firms come here in greater numbers and in greater strength to invest in Ghana and if I may say so, take advantage of the fantastic opportunities there are in this country,” he noted.

He emphasised that the UK holds a common interest with Ghana in terms of foreign policy and security as well as ensuring “stability of the region which affects us in Europe as much as anybody else”.

In the company of Mr Johnson was Adam Afriyie, a Briton with Ghanaian roots who is currently the Member of Parliament (MP) for Windsor and the UK Prime Minister’s Trade Envoy to Ghana.

Mr Johnson is also expected to tour award-winning Blue Skies Ghana Limited, meet business leaders and young entrepreneurs supported by the Department for International Development’s ENGINE-Ghana project, and meet with Rising Black Stars, highlighting both countries’ extensive cultural ties.
