Swiss Ambassador calls on Upper East Regional Minister
Bolgatanga, (Upper East) 7 Jan. '99
The Upper East Regional Minister, Alhaji Amidu Sulemana, has praised the Swiss government for supporting Ghana's development efforts. He said the Swiss government, through its embassy in Ghana, has not only supported local communities with funds to build schools and construct small-scale dams for irrigation but has also contributed significantly to health care delivery. Alhaji Sulemana said this when the Swiss ambassador to Ghana, Dr Peter Schweizer, paid a courtesy call on him at Bolgatanga as part of a week's tour of the region. The visit is also to enable the ambassador to inspect and commission some projects in the area, executed with funds from the Swiss government. The Regional Minister appealed to the ambassador to encourage the Swiss Red Cross to expand its eye care services in the region as it is in the Upper West Region.
