Dutch Foreign Minister Bert Koenders to visit Ghana


Netherlands Minister of Foreign Affairs, Bert Koenders, is expected in Ghana on a two-day visit.

The visit is on behalf of the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice-President of the European Commission, Federica Mogherini.

Mr. Koenders will lead a team to discuss with Ghanaian counterparts issues in the framework of the Ghana-EU High Level Dialogue on Migration.

As part of his visit, Mr. Koenders will meet with Ghana’s Minister of the Interior, Prosper Bani and Minister of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, Madam Hannah Tetteh.

The high level dialogue meeting in Accra follows the Africa-EU Valletta Summit on Migration in November 2015, the meeting on the Implementation of the Valletta Action Plan by ECOWAS Member States in February 2016 and recent technical and preparatory meetings between Ghana and the EU.

The dialogue will build on the recently launched National Migration Policy for Ghana and will focus on the implementation of the five pillars of the Valletta Declaration and Action Plan.
