Mr. Sugandh Rajaram said Ghana and the India Government have a strong bilateral corporation and that, his visit will help enhance and build a more sustainable relationship.

The High Commissioner added that, his visit was also an opportunity to come to the ground and explore for possible potential areas of investment that will yield mutual benefits for the two countries.

He revealed that, India is running a lot of capacity building programmes, an initiative which is benefiting Ghana and Africa as a whole.
