Ivorian President, Alassane Ouattara will today [Monday] arrive in Ghana for a two-day working visit.
The visit by the Ivorian President comes barely a month after Ghana emerged victorious in a maritime dispute with Ivory Coast at the International Tribunal of the Law of the Sea (ITLOS) in Germany.
The two countries have already accepted the decision of ITLOS, and have agreed to work towards implementing the judgement.
The two leaders will address a joint press conference after their meeting and sign bilateral agreements as well as inaugurate a joint commission for the implementation of the delimitation of the maritime boundaries of Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire.
The two leaders are also scheduled to discuss issues related to illegal mining popularly called Galamsey.
