The President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo, and the President of the Brazil Africa Institute, Professor João Bosco Monte, had a meeting this Friday (1) at the Jubilee House, in Accra, to discuss some of the actions IBRAF is planing to develop in Ghana.
Brazil Africa Institute opened its first headquarters in Accra last March and is committed to foster sinergies between Brazil and Ghana. One of the objectives is to open opportunities for the Ghanaian youth. IBRAF’s President presented to President Akufo-Addo the capacity building project of the youth in the Kente industry.
