The Queen of Denmark, Her Majesty Magrethe II, has acknowledged that although parts of her country’s past with Ghana was “not pretty” in terms of the slave trade, Denmark will build a good foundation to promote mutual relationship between the two countries.
In an interview at the Fredensborg Palace in Denmark, Queen Magrethe II said she is looking forward to her visit to Ghana in November.
She is expected to lead a delegation of 39 Danish companies to Ghana on Thursday, November 23 for a two-day official state visit.
The visit is to promote trade and investment ties between the two countries.
Queen Magrethe II says Denmark will forge a relationship to promote a partnership
With Ghana’s status as a middle-income country, Denmark is expected to end aid to Ghana by 2020.
This will mark the beginning of a partnership of trade, which will be focused on during the visit.
Agriculture and food, sustainability, the maritime sector as well as infrastructure and railways will also be areas under discussions during the visit.
