THE MAYOR of London welcomed the President of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo, the Ghanaian Minister of Trade, Alan John Kyerematen, and the Mayor of Accra, Mohammed Adjei Sowah, to City Hall this morning (Apr 17).

At their meeting, the Mayor committed to working more closely with Ghana to build important trade links and to exchange expertise on urban planning and city management between the two capitals.

He also spoke of London’s reputation for diversity and equality, and the capital’s commitment to be a welcoming place for all people – regardless of background, race, religion, sexuality or gender.

“I was very pleased to be able to welcome President Akufo-Addo and Mayor Sowah to City Hall," said Khan. "We enjoyed some productive discussions that I hope will lead to strengthened links between our communities in the future.

“London has always been a cosmopolitan and forward-looking city of great opportunities. We welcome people of different nationalities, faiths and backgrounds, including more than 61,000 Londoners of Ghanaian origin, and we remain open to people, talent and partnerships.”

The President of Ghana and the Mayor of Accra are in London to attend the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting, which takes place in the capital this week.

Accra and London already work together through international networks like C40 and 100 Resilient Cities.
