Republic of Congo will soon revive an agreement
that would enable the two countries
to share experiences in the tourism sector.
The agreement, signed about 30 years ago,
would promote the conservation of endangered
species that are otherwise killed for game purposes.
DR Congo has a lot of baboons and other wildlife,
which they battle to preserve and
Ghana also believes in conservation,
Mr Kwabena Akyeampong, Deputy Minister
of Tourism, said when the Head of Mission f
or DR Congo, Ms Marie-Jean Wayikam Ukurango,
called on him to discuss how to revive the agreement.
Mr Akyeampong said the agreement needed
to be re-tooled and re-fashioned to be
in line with present day needs and
called for more collaboration between
the two countries especially in
the areas of language learning.
Ms Ukurango recalled that Ghana and DR Congo
had a long standing relationship since the time
of late President Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah
and now that her country had re-opened
its embassy in Ghana she would personally
work to ensure that the two countries
shared a lot of experiences
especially in the tourism sector.
"I will make efforts to raise the level of
French-speaking in Ghana through
an exchange programme," she said.
