The United States of America Ambassador to Ghana, Stephanie S. Sullivan, on Tuesday paid a courtesy call on the members of the Council of State in Accra.
The visit afforded the Ambassador the opportunity to familiarise herself with the operations of the Council, establish a relationship and explore avenues for partnerships.
The meeting, which was held behind closed doors, discussed issues regarding governance, trade facilitation and security.
The Chairman of the Council, Nana Otuo Siriboe, briefing journalists at the end of the meeting, said it was a fruitful engagement.
He said the issues deliberated on with the Ambassador were mutually beneficial to the two nations and would help enhance the development of Ghana.
“As the Council, we have the mandate to discuss issues in the interest of the nation and that is what we have done. It has been good and we are happy with the responses,” he said.
Madam Sullivan presented a book that contains historical antecedents of the African-American to the Chairman of the Council.
