G20 Compact with Africa reaffirms commitment to securing Africa’s recovery from Covid-19 pandemic through private sector development and vaccine manufacturing.
The Geneva Convention relating to the Status of Refugees was adopted in 1951. It had been drawn up amid the aftermath of two devastating world wars. Today, it forms the centrepiece of international refugee protection. It remains highly relevant – because there are now more refugees than ever before.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, restrictions for entry into Germany from many countries apply. Persons entering must complete a digital entry registration. Depending on the place departure, they also have to provide a negative test result or proof of immunity, and comply with quarantine regulations.
Ambassador Christoph Retzlaff has stated in an interview on GHANA MEANS BUSINESS, a local TV programme in Ghana, that one of the major benefits of the G20 “Compact with Africa” initiative in Ghana is the fact that more German companies are now looking to Ghana for investment.
Germany and Ghana maintain close and substantial political relations. Ghana is a key partner for Germany in Africa, as illustrated by the inclusion of Ghana in the G20 initiative “Compact with Africa” under the German G20 Presidency in 2017 and by the signing of a bilateral “Reform and Investment Partnership” the same year.
The section provides consular services to German nationals and accepts visa applications from nationals and residents of Ghana, Liberia and Sierra Leone.
Ghana and Germany have been close partners since 1957. We have many joint achievement to be proud of. Our cooperation has had an impact on Ghana’s social and economic development in various areas. But more importantly, both countries are still looking in the same direction: whilst Ghana decided to move “beyond aid”, Germany vouched to strengthen African ownership and to put the days of “aid” and of “donors and recipients” behind us.
Numerous German organisations which are active in Ghana give proof of the special quality of the relations between the two countries.
On 31 December 2020, Germany’s two-year term as a member of the United Nations Security Council will come to an end. We look back here on two eventful years, ranging from the Berlin Process on Libya and a new political mission in the Sudan to our endeavours against sexual violence.
On November 28, Federal Deputy Minister of Economy and Energy, Mr Thomas Bareiß and German Ambassador to Ghana, Ambassador Christoph Retzlaff welcomed a high-ranking delegation from Ghana for the first Ghanaian-German Business Council meeting and Investment Summit in Berlin.
