The Parliament of Ghana would next week host the Italian Prime Minister, Matteo Renzi.

Renzi who would be in the country to explore trade and investment opportunities is expected to address the Parliament of Ghana after his engagement with the President of the West African country, John Dramani Mahama.

The Prime Minister would be accompanied by a high-powered delegation made up of legislators and businessmen.

The Italian Ambassador to Ghana, Ms. Laura Carpini, revealed the Prime Minister’s visit when she paid a courtesy call to the Speaker of the Parliament of Ghana, Edward Doe Adjaho Tuesday.

Renzi’s visit was later communicated to the Ghanaian legislators when the Speaker Adjaho opened the 4th Meeting of the 4th Session of the 6th Parliament of the 4th Republic later in the day.

He told members that the Business Committee of Parliament will provide details on the program for the visit when the House sits on Friday.

Renzi is currently on tour of West Africa to strengthen his country’s relation with some sub-Sahara Africa countries.

Currently in Nigeria, Renzi will head to Ghana before going to Senegal to complete his tour to the West African sub-region.
