Ghana’s President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, left Ghana on Friday, October 5, 2018, to attend the 5th Edition of the Financial Times Africa Summit taking place in London, United Kingdom from October 7 to 9, 2018.

The Summit, being held on the theme “Africa Means Business”, is featuring “high profile speakers in business, politics and economics, as well as Heads of State committed to making business central to their development goals.” President Akufo-Addo will also hold meetings with CEOs of some important global enterprises, whilst in London.

On Wednesday, October 10, 2018, the President will fly to Yerevan, Armenia, to lead the Ghanaian delegation to the 17th Summit of Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie, which will take place from October 11 to 12.

Ghana, which has been an Associate Member of La Francophonie since 2006, will be admitted at the Summit as a Full Member.

Ghana will then be only one of a handful of countries that enjoy full membership of both the Commonwealth and La Francophonie.

The President will, after the Summit, fly to Paris, France, for a series of meetings with some potential investors on Saturday, October 13, 2018.

He will return to Ghana on Sunday, October 14, 2018, and, in his absence, the Vice President, Alhaji Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, shall, in accordance with Article 60(8) of the Constitution, act in his stead.

President Akufo-Addo was accompanied by the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Shirley Ayorkor Botchway, and officials of the Presidency and the Foreign Ministry.
