by | Apr 4, 2017 | Local News | 0 comments

The Indian High Commissioner to Ghana, Birender Singh, on Monday paid a courtesy call on the Education Minister, Dr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh, to discuss areas of mutual co-operation for the needed development.

Mr. Singh expressed India’s commitment to continuously support Ghana to deepen the already existing strong development partnership between the two countries.

He said though India had been assisting Ghana in fields such as rural electrification, agro processing, and railway, they had also recently signed a number of initiatives such as the 34 million dollar sugar cane cultivation project, and the agriculture mechanisation.

“We are, however, happy to welcome fresh proposals in the area of education where the Mathematics and Science teachings as well as the tertiary level education would be linked to the ‘One District One Factory’ concept where small and medium companies would play a leading role to deepen the base further,” he said.

Dr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh, the Minister of Education, commended the High Commissioner and the people of India for the support they were giving Ghana and expressed the hope that this would further be expanded and deepened.

He prayed that the Indian Government would continue with “the behind the scenes support” to keep pushing Ghana towards economic development.

Dr. Prempeh said the Government was looking at the ‘One District One Factory’ initiative and linking it to the technical and vocational skills training with support from India and other micro enterprises.
