On 17th of September will be the annual conference, the Ghana country forum. On 7th November will be a big decision about the political development. After a lot of discussions ghana will vote for a new parliamant and a new president.
A big issue at this conference are the economic problems. Ghana was one of the quick growing economies until there were some massive problems in the industries. High inflation rate, increasing foreign indebtedness and declining domestic demand are tragic causes of the economic intrusion. The everyday life of the Ghana community is also affected.
The issue about refugees will be a big point as well. The young immigrants from Ghana are supported from the Ghanaian diaspora for better chances in Germany. In May 2016 an agreement of general partnership between Ghana and Nordrhein- Westfalen was signed.
The Ghana country forum should be a platform for the German-Ghanaian relationship. The Ghana forum coorperates with the Ghana council NRW, the ‘Verein junger deutsch-afrikaner’, the ‘Dortmunder Netzwerk Afrido’ and the ‘Auslandsgesellschaft NRW’.
