President John Evans Atta Mills is scheduled to leave the Trinidadian capital, Port of Spain, and head home after attending the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM), which took place between the 27th and 29th of November, 2009.

One of the high points of the Meeting is the election of Ghana to Chair the Commonwealth Ministerial Action Group for a period of 2 years.

A statement issued by the presidency said Ghana has also joined the Commonwealth Group to take a common position on tackling the issue of Climate Change preceding the Climate Change Summit scheduled for Copenhagen in the second week of December.

Taking time off to interact with Ghanaians in Trinidad, President Mills pledged to pay serious attention to their major concern, which has to do with having a Consul General who will pay close attention to the welfare of Ghanaians.

His Excellency Presijavascript:openNewWindow('pix.asp',%20'PhotoGallery','900','800');dent Mills also spoke to the issue of his Better Ghana agenda and said that with Ghana sending the right signals to the investor community, there is every indication that Ghana’s economy will grow at an appreciable rate and also the fact that lots of infrastructure development will take place.

“I must admit that the first ten/eleven months have been quite turbulent but with the stabilization of the economy and the creation of necessary preconditions for economic take-off, I am assuring you that we will indeed build a Better Ghana”. The President said.

“The Mills Administration is committed to nothing but, investing in our people, expanding infrastructure, building a strong and resilient economy, and most importantly, operating in an open, honest, and transparent manner especially when it comes to the use of state resources” the President added.

President Mills and his team also held talks with the Petroleum Corporation of Trinidad & Tobago and Trinidad is pledging to assist Ghana develop local capacity (as is the case in Trinidad) to manage the nation’s oil resources.

Upon his arrival in Ghana, President Atta Mills will head for the Northern Region capital, Tamale, to participate in this year’s Farmers Day celebration, and stay on to embark on a Thank You tour of the Region.
