A five-member delegation from Republic of Vanuatu, led by Ambassador Prof. Hugh Aryee, Thursday, 30 March 2023, paid a courtesy call on Ghana’s Speaker of Parliament, Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin in Parliament.
The reason for the call, according to Prof. Aryee is to formerly inform Mr. Speaker of the intensions of the President of the Republic of Vanuatu and ministers of trade commission and foreign affairs to visit Parliament of Ghana in order to boost economic activities in both countries.
Prof. Aryee noted that the visit by the team is to build bilateral relationships and to initiate trade talks between the two countries.
He used the opportunity to introduce himself to Mr. Speaker saying, he (Prof. Aryee) has become who he is today because of words of encouragements he got from statesmen like the Speaker years ago.
Prof. Aryee who serves as internal and external trade commissioner for the Republic of Vanuatu to West African sub-region indicated that people of Vanuatu are interested in learning from Ghana.
Vanuatu is a South Pacific Ocean nation made up of roughly 80 islands that stretch 1,300 kilometres.

Speaker Bagbin expressed appreciation to the delegation for their visit, and said that he has special interest in Vanuatu tourism potentials, and described the people of Vanuatu as people living in real life, who are close to nature.
