The Ambassador with concurrent accreditation to Sweden, Norway, Finland, and Iceland, has been visiting several churches dominated by Ghanaians to introduce herself and get firsthand information about their concerns in the country.
Four churches including the International Central Gospel Church, International Harvest Centre, International City Baptist Church and Pentecost, welcomed her, as the excited congregation were pleased to engage and present their grievances to the Ambassador.
“I am focused on government’s Diaspora Engagement policy, and how Ghana can get the most out of her abundant skilled diaspora population “, she stated during her visit.
Ambassador Awua-Asamoa, on September 15, presented her letters of credence to Her Majesty the Queen Denmark, Maragarette II at the Amalienborg Royal Palace in Copenhagen.
She is expected to soon present similar letters of credence to the heads of State of the other Nordic countries she has oversight over, before embarking on similar engagement programs in those countries.
