Ghana’s economic independence predicted

Mr. Stig Barlyng, the Danish Ambassador to Ghana, says with the country’s rapid economic growth, Ghana should be able to handle her development in the next 10 years, without foreign assistance.


According to him, Ghana is now a beacon of Democracy and Development in Africa and the entire world is watching its growth with keen interest.

 Mr. Barlyng made this known at the University of Ghana, Legon when he address a forum of Ghanaian and Danish History teachers, explaining that it is imperative for Ghana and Denmark to move their bilateral relationship beyond development co-operation, so that Ghanaian business interests can invest in Denmark, whilst their Danish counterparts also invest in Ghana.

 He further stated that the forum, which forms part of the activities lined up for 32 Danish History teachers, who are on a one-week visit to Ghana to exchange notes with their counterparts and also learn more about Ghana’s history and heritage, aims at enhancing the teaching of History by teachers in both countries.

 The roundtable forum was on the theme, ‘Our Shared History and Heritage: Teaching, Researching and Advocacy in Contemporary Ghana and Denmark’ was organised by the Historical Society of Ghana (HSG), in collaboration with the History Teachers Association of Denmark and the culture, Education and Technology Network (CETNET), with sponsorship from the Royal Danish Embassy in Accra.
