The Indian High Commissioner to Ghana, Sugandh Rajaram, has pledged his country’s support for the automobile industry in Ghana, stating it will serve as a major catalyst for growth.
According to the High Commissioner, India’s overall success story cannot be complete without the contributions of the automobile industry in India.
High Commissioner Rajaram said this when he paid a courtesy call on the Speaker, Rt. Hon. Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin.
He commended the Ghanaian Parliament for working hard to deepen cooperation between Ghana and India and assured that India will continue to support development initiatives in the areas of health, education, energy, ICT and agriculture.
Speaker Bagbin on his part called for further cooperation in the area of trade and investments.
He noted that activities of illegal miners, popularly known as “galamsey”, pose a serious threat to the country’s survival and urged Indian businesses to share their innovation and creativity to support Ghanaian entrepreneurs develop their own capacities.
The Speaker led a team of Members of Parliament and govermment officials to convey on behalf of the Ghanaian people the deepest sympathies to their good friends in India who have come under the most devastating COVID-19 second wave the world has seen since the pandemic struck.
The North Tongu Constituency Member of Parliament Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa in statement after the meeting said, they have underscored the fact that India deserves the world’s solidarity and support considering the inspiring leadership India has exhibited during this Pandemic. As the world’s pharmaceutical headquarters responsible for the production of some estimated 70% of vaccines and their benevolence in gifting more than 85 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines to over 70 countries including Ghana – India’s global humanitarian approach as opposed to a selfish inward looking policy must be highly commended and rewarded in their time of need.
He further reiterated that, it is their prayer that the dark clouds will soon give way to brighter days when our historic Ghana-India bilateral relations will grow in leaps and bounds.
