The Danish Ambassador to Ghana Tove Degnbol has said Danish businesses are interested in investing in renewable energy in Ghana.

Speaking of the Citi Breakfast Show, she said there are businesses that will be interested in water and waste management.

“We have a much larger trade corporation than we used to have and we are also trying to attract more. Renewable energy is definitely one of the areas Denmark is interested in. Water and waste management are among the areas Danish companies have a stronghold and are interested in coming to Ghana to investing. There is a lot of companies interest in Denmark to come to Ghana,” she said.

From Ghana’s independence in 1957, Denmark has been a trusted partner to Ghana. Both countries have  a partnership based on development cooperation in social and economic sectors,

On June 5, which marked the Danish Constitution Day, Ambassador Tove Degnbol said she has seen a major improvement in the relationship between Denmark and Ghana.

“In the year that has passed since our last Constitution Day, we have seen the relationship between Denmark and Ghana further strengthened. The major event, which has completely overshadowed everything else, was the state visit when Her Majesty Queen Margrethe II of Denmark visited Ghana with two Danish ministers and a large business delegation of 39 companies. It was the first visit by the Queen to West Africa”

President Akufo-Addo has also called for stronger trading and investment relations between Ghana and Denmark.

Speaking during bilateral talks with the Queen of Denmark, Her Majesty Margrethe II, at the Flagstaff House, the President said

“We are looking forward to developing those relations and we hope your visit will help cement new relations between our two countries.”
