Mr Akufo-Addo among other things, recounted the negative impact of the coronavirus pandemic on African economies including Ghana.
He told the Assembly that just as Ghana and other African countries were trying to get out of the pandemic, the Russia invasion of Ukraine happened, compounding the situation.
He said “As we grappled with these economic challenges, Russia invasion of Ukraine burst upon us, aggravating an already difficult situation.
“It is not just the dismay that we feel at seeing such deliberate devastation of cities and towns in Europe in the year 2022, we are feeling this war directly in our lives in Africa.
“Every bullet, every bomb, every shell that hits a target in Ukraine, hit our pockets and our economies in Africa.”
