Welcome to the website of the High Commission of Malta in Accra.

 

We will make every effort through this website to provide you with practical and relevant information. We hope that this website will serve as a window on Malta-Ghana relations as well as a bridge of communication between the High Commission and you.

 

The High Commission of Malta in Accra is committed to promoting friendly exchanges and pragmatic cooperation between the people of Malta and the people of Ghana. Intensifying relations with Ghana is also a priority for the Maltese government’s broader strategy in West Africa and beyond.

 

Diplomatic relations between Malta and Ghana go back to 1974.  Since the last couple of years however, relations have flourished with two consecutive State Visits, one in 2017 and the other one in 2019, which were followed by the official opening of the High Commission of Malta in Accra.

 

Malta views Ghana as a role model of peace, democracy and stability in the region. Malta also understands the importance of African regional integration in security and development and supports initiatives taken by Ghana and other African partners in this direction.

 

The importance of Ghana for Malta as a trade partner is also becoming increasingly evident. Ghana’s vibrant and dynamic economy provides ample opportunities for Maltese industries that are interested in venturing into the West African market, most particularly in sectors like renewable energy, waste management, ICT solutions, education and training services, manufacturing and food-processing, agriculture and construction.  Ghana’s standing in Africa further increased after the country was selected to host the secretariat of the African Continental Free Trade Area which would create a market of over 1.2 billion people once all African countries sign up.

 

A priority task of the High Commission of Malta in Ghana is to foster mutually beneficial commercial exchanges between the two countries.  The High Commission supports the Ghana Beyond Aid vision of the Government of Ghana and recognises the positive impact of private sector investments and collaborations in key sectors, such as education, health and environment, on the sustainable development and economic growth of the country.

 

To this effect, the High Commission provides regular advice to Maltese entrepreneurs who are looking at doing business in Ghana and to Ghanaian entrepreneurs who are interested in exploring new European markets.

 

It is the objective of the High Commission to stimulate the exchange of information and deepen cooperation between the two countries in all fields of mutual interest.
