Ghana and UK ties
Akufo-Addo’s visit to the UK comes at a time when Ghana and the UK seem to have reinforced their relationship.
Among the high-profile invitees who graced President Akufo-Addo’s swearing-in ceremony was the UK Prime Minister’s Trade Envoy to Ghana, Adam Afriyie, who attended on behalf of Queen Elizabeth II.
About 3 other top British leaders have also visited the country on separate occasions following the swearing-in of Akufo-Addo.
They include UK Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson, and Her Royal Highness Princess Anne, Daughter of Queen Elizabeth II.
President Akufo-Addo also paid a 3-day visit to the UK in June 2017.
Ghana is the UK’s fourth largest export market in sub-Saharan Africa, with a total of £1 billion.
