The Ghana High Commissioner in the United Kingdom, His Excellency Prof. Kwaku Danso-Boafo has urged Ghanaians who visit that country to remember to inform the High Commission of their presence, stating that, it is the Commission’s duty to assist all Ghanaians in that country, regardless of their affiliations, in the event of any incidentals and requires to keep a database of its citizens for that purpose.He made the call when the cast and crew of ‘Adam’s Apples’, which is currently shooting some scenes of the 10-chapter series in the UK , led by producer/director Shirley Frimpong-Manso, paid a courtesy call on him to announce their presence in London and also invite His Excellency to the UK premiere of the first two chapters of the series.

Citing the situations that recently occurred in Egypt and Libya as typical examples of the need for citizens to inform the High Commission of their presence in any country, Prof. Danso-Boafo, said the mission is also poised to readily assist or intervene in the unlikely situation when a citizen falls ill or into the grips of the law. He also stated that the consular service of the Commission has been streamlined and enhanced, encouraging everyone to now make application through an online request system.

Ms Frimpong Manso, thanked the High Commissioner and his team for their warm reception, using the occasion to call on His Excellency to use his good office to help encourage his colleagues in government to pay greater attention to the creative industries in Ghana as it is the one area that has the greatest potential to create employment and economic growth.

It is instructive to note that through Ms Frimpong Manso’s films, Ghanaians living abroad get to see the improved socio-economic development of urban Ghana in her stories which are mostly based on cosmopolitan city dwelling characters going through the bustle of life in a variety of ways that they can relate to. This is helping them in their decision to return home to lend a hand in the nation’s growth.

While the Ghana High Commission ensures oversight co-ordination of four Ghanaian parastatals located in London namely, the Cocoa Marketing Company, Ghana Forestry Commission, Ghana International Bank and the Universities of Ghana, its main mission is to co-ordinate, promote and protect the national interests of Ghana within the United Kingdom in a manner as to meaningfully contribute to the enhancement of Ghana’s security and socio-economic prosperity.

The Mission, therefore, provides an efficient one-stop reference for general information on Ghana, an informed market of policies and procedures for the effective promotion of Trade, Investment, Tourism, Immigration and Consular services.
