The Minister of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey has inaugurated Ghana’s first Embassy in Kuwait City in Oslo, Norway.
She said the event marks an important milestone in the diplomatic relations between Ghana and the State of Norway.
The facility has a consular section, offices for the head of chancery, political and economic officer, reception, accounts, secretary, conference room and the ambassador’s office.
The Minister for Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey, stated categorically that “it is a rented property; this is not the property Ghana wanted to buy.”
Madam Ayorkor Botchwey added that since there is a growing population of Ghanaians and Ghanaian students in various parts of Norway and with the attendant consular and welfare challenges faced by them, the opening of the embassy of Ghana in Norway, is therefore, timely and opportune to address some of the concerns of the two countries.
Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey was confident that the opening of the mission would further consolidate and heighten the diplomatic, economic, trade and investment ties for the mutual benefit of the people of the two countries.
