Their conversations emphasized on the ongoing US investment in Ghana’s human capital, which is supported by solid bilateral relations built in shared democratic principles and history.

The Ambassador also met with the National House of Chiefs’ executive committee to address the crucial role that traditional leaders play in growth, prosperity, and peace.

The U.S. government’s support for governance and peacebuilding, as well as its promotion of opportunity and development through inclusive investments in people, were the main topics of discussion during her meeting with the Ashanti Regional Minister, Simon Osei-Mensah.

Ambassador Palmer reaffirmed the United States’ commitment to preserving press freedoms and fostering journalistic professional growth to journalists at a media roundtable with Kumasi journalists.

As she spoke with local business owners at the Kumasi Hive, Ambassador Palmer emphasized the value of entrepreneurship in growing Ghana’s economy.

One of the U.S.’s primary aims is to encourage commerce, investment, and economic growth.

The government can promote sustainable economic growth by helping entrepreneurs in all areas improve their abilities, according to Ambassador Palmer.

More than 300 Senior High School students in the area received entrepreneurship training from the Kumasi Hive earlier this year with assistance from the U.S. Embassy. This training included design thinking, marketing, and a pitch competition.

In Kumasi, Ambassador Palmer met with former participants in American government exchange programs like the Mandela Washington Fellowship and the Fulbright Program.
