The Governments of the Republic of Ghana and State of Qatar have signed five Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) for the establishment of partnerships between the two countries.

This signing ceremony took place on Tuesday when President Akufo-Addo paid a day’s official visit to Qatar, where he held bilateral talks with the Emir, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani.

The first MoU signed was the “Agreement on the avoidance of Double Taxation and the prevention of Fiscal Evasion with respect to taxes on income”.

This agreement would help to alleviate territorial double taxation of the same income by the two countries. The agreement was signed on behalf of the Government of Ghana by the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Ms Shirley Ayorkor Botchway, and on behalf of Qatar by Ali Shareef Alamadi, Minister for Finance.

The next MoU was on “The Regulation of Manpower Employment in the State of Qatar” signed on behalf of Ghana by the Minister for Foreign Affairs and on behalf of Qatar by Uposif Bin Mohammed Al Othman, Minister for Administrative Development and Labour and Social Affairs.

The third and fourth MoUs signed were “Abolishing visa requirements for the holders of diplomatic and special passports”, and the “Establishment of consultations on issues of mutual interest between the Government of the State of Qatar and the Government of the Republic of Ghana.” These were both signed on behalf of Ghana by the Minister for Foreign Affairs and on behalf of Qatar by Mr. Sultan Bin Saad Al Muraikhi, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs.

The “Memorandum of Understanding between Qatar Chamber and Ghana National Chamber of Commerce and Industry” was the last to be signed. This was done by Nana Dr. Appiagyei Dankwoso I, President of the Ghana National Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and Shaikh Khalifa Bin Jassim Bin Mohammed Al Thani, Chairman of the Qatar Chamber.

President Akufo-Addo and Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani also pledged to deepen the ties of cooperation and bonds of friendship that exist between the two countries for the mutual benefit of their peoples.
