The first deputy speaker of parliament – the Hon. Joe Osei Owusu, is in Burkina Faso as the head of a seven member Ghanaian delegation to attend the opening of the Burkinabe Assembly on Wednesday the 27th of September.
The delegation was met on arrival by the president of the Assembly.
Discussions between the two focused on bilateral relations between Ghana and Burkina Faso, as well as ways of improving power supply in the two countries.
At the moment the Akosombo dam produces only about 35% of power consumed in the country. Ghana therefore depends mostly on thermal sources for her energy supply. Burkina Faso currently imports power from neighboring Côte d’Ivoire.
