The Angolan President, Joao Manuel Goncalves Lourenco, is in Accra, Ghana, to begin a three-day official visit.
President João Lourenço, who arrived in Accra Sunday, August 1, is in the country to strengthen the economic relations between Ghana and Angola and explore other areas of cooperation for their mutual benefit.
He was met on arrival at the airport by Defence Minister Dominic Nitiwul.
On Monday, August 2, President Lourenco will confer with President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo at the Jubilee House. Both leaders will hold bilateral talks and sign a Memorandum of Understanding on Political Consultations between both countries.
He will tour, lay a wreath, plant a tree at the Kwame Nkrumah Mausoleum in Accra, and later be hosted to a State Banquet at the Jubilee House by President Akufo-Addo.
On Tuesday, President Lourenco will visit the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA), where he would interact with the Secretary-General of the Secretariat, Wamkele Mene.
The Angolan President will visit and address Ghana’s Parliament on Tuesday.
President Lourenco, accompanied by a host of officials from his country, will depart for his country on Wednesday.
His visit to Ghana is reciprocal of President Akufo-Addo’s 2-day official visit to Angola in August 2019 at the Angolan leader’s request.
