  • Description

    The new French Ambassador to Ghana, M. Jean Deciry, has presented his letters of Accreditation to Ghana's Head of State, Colonel Acheampong.

    At the ceremony, M. Deciry said it was his intention to foster, by every means at his disposal, the implementation of the Cultural and Technical Co-operation Agreement which was drawn up in 1969.

    He added that his task was essentially one of strengthening and enlarging relations in very field between Ghana and France. In reply Colonel Acheampong said the appointment came at a time when many African countries are trying to achieve rapid economic development... a struggle which in many cases had proved more difficult than the struggle for independence. He said sometimes the attempts to gain economic emancipation are deliberately misconstrued as attempts to sever the bonds of traditional economic ties, even though such ties have outlived their usefulness. Colonel Acheampong added the hope that Africa's economic goals and aspirations will be understood and encouraged by those who are in a position to assist.
