The two Presidents held bilateral talks culminating in the signing of five Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs), while the bilateral relations were moved to the level of a bi-national commission. During the meeting, President Ruto revealed that they had agreed that the inaugural session of the Bi-national Commission would allow the two countries to reaffirm friendship, deepen bilateral ties and strengthen the normal course of African economic integration, PeaceFM reported.

Ruto commended Ghana’s remarkable political structure, particularly the Members of Parliament, which includes almost equal numbers of members for both the Minority and Majority. According to him, the emergence of unconstitutional governments from all directions demonstrates the level of maturity of Ghana’s democracy and the extent to which it was entrenched.

Putin also heaped praise on President Akufo-Addo and backed Ghana’s recent announcement to remove entry fees for all Africans by December of this year. He said he had also, in a similar vein, removed visa requirements for visitors from all African countries with effect from January 1 this year to align with one of the goals of the AfCFTA and create a single market on the continent to drive economic growth, grow and create more jobs, and eradicate poverty.

Speaking on economic collaboration, President Akufo-Addo highlighted that trade and economic ties between Ghana and Kenya had been growing steadily. He explained that both nations are focused on fostering deeper understanding and support for each other on international platforms, including the United Nations, the African Union, and the Commonwealth.

He also thanked Kenya for supporting Ghana’s quest to host the AfCFTA Secretariat, stating that the AfCFTA’s importance should not be underestimated “as its successful operation has the potential to transform the continent’s economic circumstances.”
