The US deputy national security advisor Daleep Singh visited Accra recently to discuss President Biden’s Build Back Better World initiative with stakeholders and to meet with the vice-president, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia.
Singh’s visit to Ghana follows his participation in COP26 in Glasgow, Scotland, where President Biden reaffirmed the United States’ commitment to address the climate crisis while mobilising investment capital to build infrastructure that drives sustainable economic recovery.
“Ghana is our first stop in Africa after COP26 to meet with partners about President Biden’s Build Back Better World initiative.
Ghana is our first stop in Africa after COP26 to meet with partners about President We will work together to support high-quality, sustainable improvements to address the demand of countries with major infrastructure needs,” Singh said.
His meeting with Dr Bawumia is a continuation of the close bilateral engagement between the Biden and Akufo-Addo governments, which included the meeting at the White House between Vice-President Kamala Harris of the United States and President Nana Akufo-Addo of Ghana in September.
This was followed by the recent visit of Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs Mary Catherine (“Molly”) Phee.
While in Accra, Singh also met with infrastructure stakeholders, including companies working in Ghana. Continuing his trip to West Africa, Singh will visit Dakar, Senegal on Friday and Saturday.
