Ghana and Trinidad and Tobago Monday renewed their commitment towards greater co-operation for the mutual benefit of their peoples.
Ghanaian President John Agyekum Kufuor and Trinidadian President George Maxwell Richards, who arrived Sunday for a four-day visit to Ghana, said in opening remarks before going into closed-door bilateral talks that they acknowledged their shared history to common ancestry.
President Kufuor noted with satisfaction the increased level of contact and co-operation between Ghana and the Caribbean state.
Recently, Ghana’s Minister of Energy travelled to Trinidad and Tobago, which has been in the oil production business for more than 100 years, to study how it has been managing its oil resources.
President Richards said he hoped their discussions would further enhance the Economic, Scientific and Technological Co-operation Agreement between them.
He expressed the desire to enter into air services agreement with Ghana as well as the ratification of a cultural agreement to promote regular cultural exchanges.
