Mexico reopens Ghana Embassy after over 30-yrs closure

Mexico is re-opening its Embassy in Ghana after over 30 years. President John Dramani Mahama, who presented a letter of credence to the new Ambassador at the Flagstaff House, said it is an opportunity to strengthen business and bilateral ties between the two countries.

Mexico closed down its Embassy in Accra in 1980. But the country is re-opening it with the aim of strengthening bilateral trade.

Mexican Ambassador to Ghana, Maria De Los Angeles Aguirre, said both countries stand to benefit from the reopening of the Embassy.

“We decided to open our first Embassy of the actual government here in Ghana in recognition to the very important role that Ghana plays in the Sub-Sahara region and also internationally”.

President Mahama said the reopening of the Embassy is an opportunity to promote trade among the two countries.

“It’s significant that the Embassy is reopening after so many years and I am sure that your presence will strengthen the relationship between the two countries in the area of trade and investment”.

Six other Ambassadors from Seychelles, Denmark, Tanzania and Serbia, were also at the Flagstaff House to present their letters of credence.

President Mahama called closer collaboration with the Ambassadors
