The Daily Graphic commends Ghana and the UK for fruitful relations over the years. The paper is particularly happy about trade relations between the two countries but is not enthused by the fact that while Ghana’s imports from the UK have grown by five per cent over the last five years, its exports to the UK have declined by over 46 per cent within the same period. It appreciates the President’s concern over the issue when he met the Prince of Wales at the Flagstaff House. The paper is also happy to follow the Prince’s itinerary since his arrival and hopes the knowledge he gains as he makes his rounds and experiences gathered will end in productive bilateral decisions that will benefit the two countries. The Graphic appeals to Prince Charles to use his influence to help prop up the volumes of exports from Ghana to the UK.
