Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni has arrived in Ghana for a two-day official state visit.
Welcoming him at the Kotoka International Airport Monday evening, Ghana’s Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia wished him a “fruitful visit to our dear country” and hoped his presence will help foster knit relationship between the two countries.
Gentiloni is expected to hold bilateral talks with President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as part of the visit, and interact with business establishments with an Italian interest while in Ghana.
The last time an Italian Prime Minister visited Ghana was in February 2016 when then leader Matteo Renzi paid a courtesy call on John Dramani Mahama.
Meanwhile, French President, Emmanuel Macron, will be in Ghana on Thursday, November 30, for a day’s visit. He is on an Africa tour which began Monday.
He will be visiting Burkina Faso and Côte d’Ivoire before coming to Ghana.
