President Cyril Ramaphosa left South Africa on Tuesday, November 30, for a week-long diplomatic trip to West Africa to strengthen relations with Nigeria, Côte d'Ivoire, Ghana and Senegal. 

Ramaphosa completed a two-day labor visit to Ghana on Sunday, December 5th. The president described the visit as a success. Rama Poza and his Ghanaian counterpart Nana Dunkwa Akufoad have signed agreements in the areas of transportation, agriculture, women and children.

The trip also culminated in a bilateral committee composition meeting that replaced the Presidential Joint Cooperation Committee, which has previously promoted involvement between South Africa and Ghana.

According to SABC News, the president said he was pleased that Ghana welcomed him to visit, unlike Western countries banning travel to South Africa.

The final stop for Rama Poza is Senegal from December 6th to 7th. He will attend the Dakar Peace and Security Forum on Monday and the "Official Visit Program" on Tuesday.

"During this visit, a number of agreements will be signed between South Africa and Senegal, including an agreement to raise the Joint Committee on Bilateral Cooperation from the ministerial level to the presidential level." We can further strengthen our relationship, "said the president.
