The Minister for Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, Madam Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey has inaugurated Ghana’s Diplomatic Mission in Oslo, Norway to serve about 3,000 Ghanaians residing in that country.

The inauguration ceremony for the 5-year rented facility was on the sidelines of President Akufo-Addo’s state visit to Norway.

The facility has a unit of the Ambassador’s office, consular section, offices for the economic and political officers, a reception and a waiting area. It also has a room for meetings and other public engagements.

Madam Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey said Government will continue to strive to make Ghanaians in Norway work with industry staff to suggest innovative ways to help further develop the country.

“I wish to assure you that the ambassador and diplomatic staff are deeply committed to working with you at all times to ensure that the Mission achieves its objectives including providing you with effective and efficient consular services that you all be very proud of,” the Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration Minister said.

“I, therefore, use this opportunity to appeal to our compatriots, residents in Norway to fully engage officials of the Embassy and proffer ideas and suggestions to support our quest for socio-economic development” Madam Ayorkor Botchwey added.

The plan to open a diplomatic Mission in Norway was first announced by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Madam Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey in September 2018 after President Akufo-Addo and the Prime Minister of Norway Ena Solberg held bilateral talks on the sidelines at the 73rd United Nations General Assembly in New York, USA.
