الخيارات الثنائية مراجعة مليونير I deem it a great honour and privilege to be asked, on behalf of the Government of Ghana, to open this important Colloquium of the Diaspora Engagement Project which is to offer all of us participants the opportunity to exchange views and reflect on more effective ways of linking or mainstreaming our fellow citizens in the Diaspora to the development of our dear country.

In its pursuit of Ghana’s foreign policy, a cardinal objective of the Ministry is to promote and protect the interest of the Republic of Ghana of which the wellbeing and welfare of the Ghanaian everywhere is paramount, if not central.

In fact, to those who are occasionally tempted to doubt the need for the over fifty missions we have abroad, my answer is that in many cases the justification for opening and keeping of some missions lies in the overriding importance we attach not to the cost but the value of being present to look after the welfare of Ghanaians abroad.  

source url Besides taking care of the welfare and consular needs of Ghanaians abroad, Government’s renewed focus on economic or commercial diplomacy dictates that we explore more innovative initiatives to engage our compatriots oversees in the development agenda of Ghana in a more proactive manner. The days of paying marginal attention to the diaspora are over, as the contribution of our compatriots abroad in the development of our country cannot be overemphasized. Ghanaians abroad now account for a substantial portion of our country’s foreign exchanges remittances, not to mention the significant investments made by returning Ghanaians in the fields of education, banking, health and trade among others. In the African Union, Ghana subscribes to the position that the African Diaspora constitutes the fifth region of Africa, thus reinforcing Government’s commitment to this paradigm shift which places the role of the Ghanaian abroad in national development among its top priorities both at the domestic and foreign policy levels.

enter site In light of the crucial role Ghanaians abroad play in national development, the Government, through the relevant Ghanaian agencies – whose work have profound impact on the livelihood and lives of our compatriots in the diaspora – actively supports the Diaspora Engagement pilot project in partnership with the International Organization for Migration. I am aware that this colloquium forms part and indeed, is the climax of the pilot project. While the one-year pilot project focused on five countries, namely, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, the United Kingdom and the United States, where there are large concentration of Ghanaians, it is  contemplated that the lessons and best practices learned during the project cycle will be brought to bear on the quality of service we render to all Ghanaian communities oversees. It is also hoped that through this project, some of the recommendations adopted at the last homecoming summit of the Diaspora some years back, will be activated where still practicable and feasible.

Lest we forget, this is not the first initiative to show our concern for the interests and acknowledgement of the contribution of our Ghanaian diaspora. We should recall the amendment of the Constitution to allow dual citizenship. Very soon many of our Ghana missions abroad will be equipped to issue biometric passports close to where Ghanaians live and work in foreign lands. Other creative measures are also being examined to enhance our national capacity to cater to the needs of families of Ghanaians who may fall ¡n distress, become destitute or die outside. Please rest assured that the Government stands ready to support the Electoral Commission of Ghana to implement the law (ROPAA) passed by Parliament to enable Ghanaians abroad to vote as soon as the consultations between the Electoral Commission and the Inter-Party Advisory Committee on the modalities and implementing regulations have been finalized.

خيار ثنائي الروبوت دليل The rate at which a number of irregular Ghanaian migrants are being repatriated home for staying abroad illegally or overstaying their permits should be enough to warn potential Ghanaian migrants to think carefully before making decisions to travel abroad instead of taking advantage of opportunities here at home. I would, therefore, like to use this occasion to appeal to Ghanaians abroad to be law-abiding ¡n their countries of sojourn and to would-be Ghanaian migrants to refrain from using unapproved or illegal routes and fake travel documents. The general public must be wary of the activities of visa and travel document fraudsters and human traffickers who promise them non-existent greener pastures outside.
