Ghanaian President Nana Akufo-Addo on Friday said he would intensify efforts to deepen relations between Ghana and South Korea.

President Akufo-Addo said this when the outgoing South Korean Ambassador to Ghana, Lyeo Woon-Ki, called on him at the Presidency in Accra to bid him farewell as he ends his two-and-a-half year duty tour of Ghana.

He said economic exchanges between the two countries had a lot more room for growth and development, stressing that Ghana was particularly interested in wooing Korean industries as a basis for producing things for both Ghana and continental markets.

“We are about to institutionalize the continental free trade area. All of this is to give us an opportunity to develop our own industrial and manufacturing basis. I think the involvement of Korea in this exercise will be mutually beneficial for all of us,” the Ghanaian leader said. Enditem
