Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the Vice President of Ghana, has welcomed the Prime Minister of Netherlands, Mark Rutte, to the country for a two-day visit.
His visit coincides with that of the President of France, Emmanuel Macron, who is also visiting Ghana, as part of his Africa tour.
They will be meeting with the presidency, to hold bilateral talks on economic partnerships, as well as further strengthen already good relations between their countries.
President Akufo-Addo is scheduled to host a lunch with the two European leaders.
During his visit, H.E Mark Rutte will visit the MDK Flowers and Greens company in Tema, which produces flowers and plants for exports to the Netherlands.
He will also be at the signing ceremony for a loan facilitated by Fidelity Bank, through the the Dutch-funded water and sanitation program, to a hospital in Tema.
