Vienna, 27.09.2023

This morning marked a significant moment in the realm of international collaboration as Dr. Kwaku Afriyie, the Minister of Environment, Science, Technology, and Innovation, led a distinguished technical committee delegation from the Ghana Atomic Energy Commission (GAEC) to engage in a bilateral meeting with His Excellency Andrew Bowie, the United Kingdom’s Minister for Nuclear and Network, along with a prominent UK delegation.

The meeting, characterized by its constructive and forward-looking discussions, served as a platform for both nations to explore synergies and deepen their cooperation in the fields of nuclear energy, network development, and environmental sustainability.

Joining Minister Dr. Kwaku Afriyie on this diplomatic mission were Prof. Samuel Damprah, Director-General of GAEC, and concurrently the Board Chairman of GAEC, Dr. Kwaku Anning. Their collective presence underscored the gravity of the subjects under deliberation.

The outcomes of this high-level interaction are poised to facilitate innovative solutions and mutually beneficial endeavors between Ghana and the United Kingdom. As global concerns about nuclear energy, network expansion, and environmental conservation grow, this bilateral meeting reaffirms Ghana’s commitment to fostering international partnerships that contribute to sustainable development.
