Top White House official visits Ghana after COP26

Daleep Singh called on Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia

US Deputy National Security Adviser Daleep Singh visited Accra this week to discuss President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better World initiative with stakeholders.

He also met with Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia

Singh’s visit to Ghana follows his participation in COP26 in Glasgow, Scotland, where President Biden reaffirmed the United States’ commitment to address the climate crisis while mobilizing investment capital to build infrastructure that drives sustainable economic recovery.

“Ghana is our first stop in Africa after COP26 to meet with partners about President Biden’s Build Back Better World initiative,” said Deputy National Security Adviser Singh. 

“We will work together to support high-quality, sustainable improvements to address the demand of countries with major infrastructure needs.” 

Singh’s meeting with Vice President Bawumia is a continuation of the close bilateral engagement between the Biden and Akufo-Addo administrations, which includes U.S. Vice President Harris’s meeting at the White House with Ghana President Nana Akufo-Addo in September, followed by the recent visit of Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs Molly Phee. 

While in Accra, Singh also met with infrastructure stakeholders, including companies working in Ghana. 

As part of his trip to West Africa, Deputy National Security Advisor Singh will visit Dakar, Senegal on Friday and Saturday.
