Iran, Ghana sign MoUs on energy, mining

Tehran, Aug 7, IRNA – Iran and Ghana have signed MoUs on producing LPG, constructing dams, setting up medicine factories, and discovering mines.

The MoUs were signed in a meeting between Iranian Minister of Labor Ali Rabiee and Ghanaian Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia in Tehran on Sunday.

Rabeiee said Iran has already had economic relations with six African countries, and that Iran can transfer its experiences in vocational education to Ghana.

Bawumia said in the meeting that Iran can transfer its technical knowledge in different fields to Ghana, including housing, cement production, processing cocoa, oil, gas, and medicine production, adding that economic cooperation with Iran is a win-win situation.

Head of Iran's Trade Promotion Organization (TPO) Mojtaba Khosrotaj said earlier that a large part of Iranian export contains Ghana's needs and can be included in the Iranian export to Ghana.

Among them are tires, cement, ceramics and tiles, polymer products, medicine, agricultural produce like tomatoes, agricultural machinery like tractors, steel products, piles, motorcycles and spare parts, butane liquefied gas, and plastic products.

According to a TPO official, the Iran-Ghana Joint Economic Cooperation Commission meeting will be held in Ghana in two months.
