Ghana and Tunisia are renewing their commitment towards setting a new agenda for cooperation, which would facilitate the holistic national development of both sides.

Madam Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, who is currently in Tunis for the related bilateral dialogue, stated: “The commitment will deepen our engagement at all levels, particularly, within the area of economic cooperation”.
A statement issued by the Ministry, and copied to the Ghana News Agency in Accra, on Monday, said the two-day official visit, was a historic one, coming in 40 years by a Ghanaian Foreign Minister to the ‘historic oil-rich nation’.
The visit is at the invitation of the Minister for Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Tunisia, Mr Khemaies Jhinaoui.
Madam Botchwey is expected to hold discussions with her Tunisian counterpart and sign some agreements with her host.
She would also hold discussions with the Tunisian Ministers of Trade and Industry to explore areas of possible collaboration for mutual benefits, while engaging in a touristic and cultural visit to the Sidi Bou Said, a village said to be laden with ‘history and spirituality’.
It would be recalled that a 26-member Tunisian Business Delegation, led by Mr Hatem Ferjani, the Secretary of State to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, visited Ghana from January 13 to 17, 2019.
They engaged in useful discussions with the Ghanaian Business Community on many issues, including the intention to boost the connectivity between Accra and Tunis through direct air links by Air Tunis and a direct shipping line to the Port of Tema.
Ghana and Tunisia has historic ties dating back to the post -independence era, and especially between Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana’s first President and Mr Habib Bourguiba, the former President of Tunisia, in the best traditions of Pan-Africanism.
Madam Botchwey is also the Member of Parliament for Anyaa-Sowutuom Constituency.
