By | All News, Editors Article, Topical | No Comments

Chief Executive of the UK Ghana Chamber of Commerce (UKGCC), Tony Burkson has today
welcomed The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall to Ghana.
Mr Burkson said: “It is a great honour for me, on behalf of the United Kingdom-Ghana
Chamber of Commerce, to welcome your Royal Highnesses’ The Prince of Wales and the
Duchess of Cornwall to Ghana and to wish you a truly memorable time during your visit.
Ghana and the UK have, for many years, shared a close relationship, and one which we are
very proud to celebrate with your Highnesses’ today.
You come to Ghana at an exciting stage in its history as it grows and develops and looks to play
a major part in a revitalised and reformed Commonwealth, which we know you are very keen
and proud supporter of.
We also know that enterprise, along with the environment and the support of young people, are
areas you are very passionate about. The UKGCC is also very passionate about supporting
enterprise and business initiatives between our two nations and, since our formation two years
ago, we have taken huge strides to promote the interests of UK companies operating in Ghana
and acting as a gateway for Ghanaian companies seeking growth opportunities.”
Their Royal Highnesses will arrive in Ghana on Friday November 2, as part of a historic tour of
three African countries. They will spend four days in Ghana (November 2-6) as part of the visit.
