Good collaboration

Madam Degnbol said over the years the Danish Government had had good collaborations with the Ministry of Education and was hopeful that it would continue.

The ambassador was happy with the collaboration with the government of Ghana, particularly with the Ministry of Education, and said her government would continue the positive collaboration it had with Ghana. 

Denmark as good supporter

Dr Prempeh stated that the ambassador and her team were in his office to find out how the two could collaborate and cooperate to enhance the effectiveness of Danish Government support to Ghana.

He said historically, Denmark had been one of the good supporters of Ghana government’s programmes and projects.
