Valerie meets with delegation from Ghana

The Commonwealth Parliament Association (CPA) and the Parliament Ghana have had a long fruitful relationship over many decades based on bilateral diplomacy and capacity building.

I met with a delegation from Ghana on Wednesday 21 November 2018 which included: Hon. Kwasi Ameyaw-Cheremeh MP, Hon. Mohammed-Mubarak Muntaka MP, Hon. Matthew Nyindam MP, Hon. Frederick Opare-Ansah MP, Hon. Derek Oduro MP, Hon. Dr Abdul-Rashid Hassan Pelpuo MP, Hon. Eric Afful MP, Hon. Otuteye Christian Corletey MP, Hon. Philip Basoah MP, Hon. Addo Frimpong Yaw MP, Hon. John Frimpong Osei MP, Hon. Angela Oforiwa Alorwu-Tay MP, Robert Apodalla, Paul Baka and Ephraim Amu.

I spoke about the management of Parliamentary business in the House of Commons, my role as Shadow Leader of the House, and recent developments and challenges in relation to planning Parliamentary business.

The visit aimed to deepen understanding of international good practice in the oversight of public finance through engagement, explore the differences between the approaches of the Business Committees in UK and Ghana and further strengthen bilateral relations between the Parliament of Ghana and CPA UK.
