John-Mahama-in-Iran-for-state-visit-620x400President John Dramani Mahama is currently in Iran at the invitation of Iranian President, Hassan Rouhani.

His visit is set to strengthen the relationship between Ghana and Iran.

The two countries have a long-standing relationship as members of the Non-Aligned Movement.

In 2014, during a visit to Ghana by former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the two countries established a Permanent Joint Commission.

With seven Iranian companies investing over $8.6 million in the Ghanaian economy, President Mahama is expected to attend a Business Forum in Tehran to push for more Ghana- Iran Business Collaboration, with Ghanaian entities exploring export markets in Iran.

He will also hold bilateral discussions with President Hassan Rouhani and address a joint press conference later on Sunday February 14.

The two leaders are expected to sign a Memorandum of Understanding and attend an Official Luncheon in honour of President Mahama.

President Mahama will also meet the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei and hold discussions with the Speaker of Majlis (Parliament), Dr. Ali Larijani.

President Mahama will also visit a power plant and meet with Ghanaians in Iran before returning home.
