Her Majesty the Queen of Denmark will be visiting Ghana in November. She will be joined by several Danish ministers and a delegation of Danish businesses.

At the invitation of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, Denmark’s Head of State, Queen Margrethe II will be visiting Ghana from November 23–24.

The state visit will emphasize and consolidate the long-standing and well-established relations between Ghana and Denmark while at the same time marking the gradual transition from aid to trade, a release by the Denmark Embassy in Accra said on Monday.

Government representatives and a delegation of Danish companies and business organisations will be accompanying her in order to strengthen the political and commercial relations between the two nations.

“During many years, Denmark through the Danida development cooperation has played an important role in developing key sectors and institutions in Ghana. With Ghana’s graduation to a middle-income country and the prospects of sustainable economic growth, Denmark is gradually transitioning from development cooperation to trade cooperation in line with the visions by the Government of Ghana.”

From aid to trade

During the visit, a business conference will take place including seminars and meetings under the theme ”Ghana – an Emerging Market within Reach”. The focus will be three priority sectors, where Denmark has key strengths to offer the growing demand in Ghana:

• Food & Agriculture
• Sustainability
• Maritime, Infrastructure & Railways

The Queen will be officially received by President Akufo-Addo. She will be participating in the opening of the business conference as well as visiting businesses and cultural institutions.

  1. I like Denmark and wish Ghana will learn from Denmark in renewable energy, agribusiness, ICT, SMEs, fat tax on sugary products, tobacco, gas and education to say the least

  2. I believe that Britain should be quicker dealing with its commonwealth partners in this respect. There would be many benefits not only from Ghana’s minerals but also in foodstuffs.
