Czech - Ghanaian Chamber of Commerce


Switzerland has earmarked an amount of $80 million to support the enhanced competitiveness of Ghanaian enterprises in the global market space, as well as help in government’s efforts at diversifying the Ghanaian economy.

Ghana has been classified by Switzerland’s State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) as a priority country for economic development, resulting in the signing of the Swiss co-operation strategy for Ghana.

The discussions between Ghana and Switzerland in the areas of Foreign Affairs, UN Reforms, Finance, Security and Agriculture, are aimed at deepening the bilateral relations existing between them, as well as exploring other areas of co-operation.

President Akufo-Addo stated that the two countries underlined and reinforced their co-operation in helping to end the scourge of terrorism, and the threats to peace and sustainable development in Africa and the world.

Ghana and Switzerland also agreed to work closely within the United Nations Human Rights Council, as well as with other UN agencies, and extended mutual support for the candidatures of the two countries, vying for positions on the UN Security Council and other UN bodies.

The two Presidents also discussed the issues of migration and mobility, and the high numbers of young Africans taking harrowing risks across the Sahara and around the Mediterranean, trying to reach a better life.

President Akufo-Addo stated “if we provide them the right environment in Africa, which enables them to enhance their skills, receive appropriate training, have access to digital technology and enhanced economic opportunities, their energies can be channeled towards making our continent great.”

We should not accept that only Asians can engineer their transition from poverty to prosperity.

Africans and especially Ghanaians are determined to do that in our generation in Ghana as well.
