During the program’s launch, the UK Foreign Secretary, James Cleverly, indicated how impressed he is with the Government of Ghana for the various interventions implemented to fight illegal mining. He said the Government of the United Kingdom was committed to supporting security, law enforcement and crime prevention, and the mining sector was one of the critical areas they’ve identified to support the Government of Ghana.

He also highlighted that the Government of President Akufo-Addo remains fully committed to the fight against illegal mining and urged the delegates to continue their partnerships and efforts to collaborate effectively.

“We will continue to build the necessary partnerships to promote a responsible, sustainable and environmentally-sound small scale mining sector that contributes meaningfully to our national economy,” he urged.
