President Akufo-Addo left Ghana on Tuesday, 22nd October, 2019, to lead the Ghanaian delegation to attend the maiden Russia-Africa Summit, being held in Sochi, Russia.

The Summit is being held to deepen the ties of friendship between the two sides, as well as explore other areas of co-operation to their mutual benefit.

Whilst in Russia, President Akufo-Addo is expected to hold bilateral meetings with the President of the Russian Federation, His Excellency Vladimir Putin, deliver a statement on the floor of the Summit on the theme “For Peace, Security and Development”, and hold meetings with CEOs of some important Russian enterprises.
