HE John Dramani Mahama
President of Ghana
This message is from the previous President HE Professor John Evans Atta Mills. The message from Mr Mahama will be available shortly.
Welcome to Ghana!
As an active and committed member of the Commonwealth, Ghana shares the ideals and aspirations of the fifty-three member organisation.
This is because we believe that the Commonwealth has a vital role to play in harmonising interests and forging partnerships across the globe.
We are happy to be part of the organisation’s efforts at strengthening civil society particularly in our country and also further expanding our democratic culture, institutions of accountability, and business practices in a manner that enables all to experience the rewards of economic growth and prosperity.
Under my leadership, Ghana will continue to forge the necessary partnerships and business networks across the world in furtherance of our interests and those of the Commonwealth aimed at creating viable opportunities for investors to create close links with the Ghanaian business community.
We in Ghana believe that our destiny is a call to leadership in Africa and beyond.
As the first African country south of the Sahara to gain independence, we have always cherished our close ties with countries and organisations such as the Commonwealth with which we share core values and principles.
Our recent discovery of oil and gas in commercial quantities, and my administration’s strong commitment to building a Better Ghana, offer great opportunities for investing in an economy that is on a strong footing.
Also, our colourful cultural festivals as well as our strengthened socio-economic environment and democratic credentials make us not only an ideal tourist destination but also the natural gateway to West Africa.
As President, I invite you to make Ghana a destination of choice, and I look forward to working with all Commonwealth Leaders in fulfilling the aspirations of our people.
The warmth of the Ghanaian people as well as our proverbial hospitality awaits all visitors.
