As part of its Diaspora outreach programme, dubbed Community Meeting Series (CMS), the Head of Mission, H.E. Sena Siaw-Boateng on Saturday, 23 November, 2019, met with the members of the Ghanaian community in Liege. The highly patronised event was held at the auditorium of the Church of Pentecost and was organised in collaboration with the Ghana Union of Liege and the Ghana Council of Belgium.

The CMS has been instituted by the Embassy to promote regular dialogue with the Ghanaian Diaspora in Belgium, particularly, on matters relating to the welfare of community members as regard access to consular services. Similar meetings have been held with the members of the Ghanaian community in Antwerp and Gent. Through the CMS and other planned engagements with the Ghanaian Diaspora, the Embassy hopes to harness the resourcefulness and enterprise of the Ghanaian community in the various Belgian cities, many of whom are professionals and successful private business actors, with a view to supporting national developments efforts.

H.E. Siaw-Boateng used the platform of the meeting to update the members of the Ghanaian Community on various innovative programmes being implemented by the administration of H.E. Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to improve the living standards of Ghanaians. She urged the community members to rally round the social and economic interventions taking place in the education and agriculture sectors, especially the “Planting for Food and Jobs” and “Free Senior High School (SHS)” to enable the programmes accrue positive benefits for every Ghanaian.

The community members, during the interactive segment of the meeting, commended the Embassy for putting together the outreach programme. They also raised concerns about the cost of visas and processing of passports, difficulties encountered in motor insurance claims and importation of over-aged vehicles into Ghana, to which H.E. Siaw-Boateng responded that the concerns would be brought to the attention of the competent authorities for immediate redress.
