Minister for Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey, on behalf of the Republic of Ghana, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Hungary on cooperation in the field of water management aimed at establishing a framework for swift and seamless cooperation between the parties on the basis of equality, reciprocity and mutual benefits.

The signing ceremony took place on Tuesday, January 22, 2019, in Brussels, Belgium, on the sidelines of the just-ended first annual European Union (EU) – African Union (AU) Ministerial meeting.

Hungary’s Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade, Péter Szijjártó, who initialed on behalf of his country, pledged to support the agreement in accordance with the national laws and regulations in force in the two countries.

Ms Botchwey, who doubles as Member of Parliament for Anyaa-Sowutuom, also met her counterparts from Malta and Portugal to explore possibilities of further deepening bilateral relations between Ghana and the two countries.

The EU-AU Ministerial meeting, the first annual inter–summit forum, was an opportunity to take stock of the implementation of the outcome of the 5th AU–EU Summit in Abidjan in November 2017, which was a milestone that reshaped the partnership into an even stronger and mutually beneficial one.

The meeting brought together Foreign Ministers of the EU and over 50 states across Africa, including Ghana, Togo, Liberia, Senegal and Niger.

Participants deliberated on peace, security and governance, trade, investment and economic integration, as well as multilateralism, which they believe is the best recipe to deepen cooperation.

To solidify this agreement, the meeting adopted a communiqué where members confirmed their common determination to build on partnerships and move towards an even stronger, deeper and more political partnership and friendship between both continents, among others.

It was co-chaired by high representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini and Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of Rwanda, Richard Sezibera.
