Ghana's Vice President visits Czech Republic

African Update – 17/11/10

The Czech Republic received a very important visitor in the person of His Excellency John Dramani Mahama-Vice President of the Republic of Ghana.This is first time in many years that such a high level visit has taken place between the two friendly nations. Here is a short report.

The Vice President was in Prague as a special guest for the first Ghana-Czech Trade and Investment Forum held at the Clarion Congress Hotel on the 9th November 2010.While here he met and had bilateral talks with the Czech Prime Minister Petr Necas and His Excellency President Vaclav Klaus. Vice President John Mahama also met and interacted with the Ghanaian community in the Czech Republic.We are informed that His Excellency John Mahama visited Czech institutions and companies such as the Pilzen Technical University and Skoda Factory all in Pilzen.He invited them to come to Ghana and encourged them to invest in Afrika.The Vice President was here from 9th to 14th November,2010.Humanitas Afrika believes strongly that the Vice President of Ghana made the right decision in coming to the Czech Republic, because it's one of the most successful economies in all the countries of the former Eastern Bloc.The peaceful separation of former Czechoslovakia should serve as model in conflict prevention and managment for all nations of the world.

The tranformational experience which has worked well for the Czech Republic is precisely what Ghana and Afrika might need to revive and create functional and sustainable transport, energy, agriculture and infrastructural sector. If a 10-million population can create this beautiful nation called the Czech Republic, then certainly 20 million people can do it in Ghana.
