By Clement Edward Kumsah

Ghana will soon open an embassy in Norway to boost bilateral relations between the two countries.

This was revealed by Ms Shirley Ayorkor Botchway, Ghana’s Minister of Foreign Affairs in New York following a meeting between President Nana Akufo-Addo of Ghana and Norway Premier Erna Solberg – both co-Chairs of the Advocacy Group of Eminent Persons for the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Ms Botchway said Norway already has an embassy in Ghana and noted that the West African country will also put up one in Oslo, the Norwegian capital.

“They [Mr Akufo-Addo and Ms Solberg] also looked at the bilateral relations between our two countries. We are working very well; we have some Norwegian companies in Ghana who are doing business, with some in the oil and gas industry.

“The President also did announce to her that very soon, we will be opening an embassy in Oslo,” Ms Botchway told Moro Awudu.

The 73rd session of the UN General Assembly has officially opened on the theme: “Making the United Nations relevant to all people: Global leadership and shared responsibility for peaceful, equitable and sustainable societies”.
