Two Memoranda of Understanding and an Agreement were signed during the visit regarding transport, energy and the Bilateral Air Services Agreement.
"Agreements were signed which highlight the level of cooperation between our two countries and we have agreed that these instruments should translate into concrete projects that will benefit our people and further promote our economic relations,” said Zuma.
According to the Presidency, Ghana is a major export market for South African goods, with investors from South Africa prevalent in the mining, retail, insurance, transport, tourism, banking, telecommunications, construction, services, franchising, manufacturing, fishing, advertising, aviation and energy sectors of Ghana.
Both Zuma and Mahama encouraged the business sector to take advantage of the two countries' cordial bilateral relations to enhance trade and investment as both countries were open for business and investments.
The talks between the two Presidents included regional, continental and global issues. South Africa and Ghana share common views with regard to the maintenance of peace, security and stability on the African continent, the need for greater intra-African trade, industrialisation of the African continent and reform of global institutions of governance such as United Nations Security Council. – SAnews.gov.za
