Kufuor arrives in London 3/13/2007
... to begin State visit
London, March 12, GNA - President John Agyekum Kufuor on Monday arrived in London to begin a three-day historic state visit on the invitation of the British Monarch, Queen Elizabeth II.
The Viscount Brookeborough (Lord in Waiting) was present at Heathrow Airport, London upon the Arrival of The President and Mrs Kufuor and welcomed His Excellency and Mrs Kufuor on behalf of The Queen.

Kufuor is accompanied by a high powered delegation including the Chairman of the Council of State, Professor Daniel Adzei-Bekoe and another member of the Council, Madam Ama Busia, Foreign Minister Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo, the Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mr Kwamena Bartels and some senior Government officials.

The visit, the first ever to be made by a Ghanaian Head of State, is designed not only to reinforce the historical political links between Ghana and her former colonial ruler, Britain, but also showcase Ghana''s economic and political success story with a view to getting more development support for the country.

The highlights would include bilateral talks with Prime Minister Tony Blair, the Leader of the British Opposition Party, the Commonwealth Secretary General and the leader of the Liberal Democrats.

President Kufuor''s other engagements would involve holding business meetings with the West African Business Association and the Commonwealth Business Council, working breakfast with African Heads of Mission and a major policy statement at the Royal Institute of International Affairs.

Additionally, he would deliver a lecture at the Liverpool John Moores University, where he would receive an Honorary Doctorate Degree. Ghana and Britain have maintained excellent relations since Ghana''s independence with the former colonial master being its biggest trading partner.

Trade between the two stood at 221 million pounds sterling for the period between January and September, last year.
