President John Agyekum Kufuor on Monday said Ghana and India would co-operate for improved Information Technology (IT) transfer in the country.

He said with the advancement of India in that field, it would be appropriate for such co-operation to enable Ghana to benefit immensely from the long bond of friendship between both countries.

President Kufuor said this when the out-going Indian High Commissioner in Ghana, Mr Arun Kumar Banerjee paid a farewell call on him at the Castle, Osu. Mr Banerjee has been in the country since December 1998.

President Kufuor commended India for her tremendous role in South-South co-operation, which had benefited most African countries.

He pledged government's commitment to further strengthen the relationship between the two countries.

He said government expected Mr Banerjee to be an advocate for Ghana and African countries to bring them into the mainstream of global issues.

Mr Banerjee said the cordial relationship between India and African countries had been revived and improved for the past years.

He said this had culminated in the scheduling of a conference on South Saharan Africa and Indian relations in Johannesburg, South Africa from November 27-28, this year.

The out-going Indian High Commissioner said the dignity and respect that had existed between Indian and African countries would be upheld and further strengthened.

He said much political will was required from governments to review the economic and social challenges facing them for the private sector in both countries to succeed.
