President John Dramani Mahama, who is on a four-day visit to Turkey, will this morning hold talks with President Abdullah G?l at the Presidential Palace in Ankara and later co-chair a bilateral session with President G?l.

A statement in Accra on Tuesday from the Office of the President said some cooperation agreements that had been under discussion since President G?l?s visit to Ghana in 2011 would be signed.

It said  President Mahama would meet Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and later attend an official dinner hosted by President G?l in his honour.

President Mahama would lay a wreath on the Mausoleum of Mustafa Kemal Atat?rk, founder and first President of Turkey. The site is also the final resting place of the late President Ismet In?n?, the second President of Turkey.

Turkey, like Ghana, is aggressively looking for new business and trading partners, new opportunities and a greater role on the international stage. It also has solid democratic credentials like Ghana and President Mahama is looking to enhance relations with one of the world?s progressive emerging economies, promote trade relations, and business partnerships.

On Monday, President Mahama inaugurated a new Chancery for the Ghana Mission in Ankara, two years after Turkey re-opened its mission in Accra. He also met the Ankara Chamber of Industry reminding them that Ghana remained the best hub to reach the rest of the African market, the statement said.

He said Ghana, a peaceful and stable democratic country in Africa, offered immense investment opportunities in infrastructure development, oil and gas, agro-processing, power generation and pharmaceuticals.

?Visit Ghana and see for yourselves the opportunities for investment that are available?, President Mahama said.
