The conversation also covered potential new avenues for partnership and collaboration, aiming to bolster the support for democratic governance and parliamentary development in Africa.

“We are excited about the prospects of strengthening our partnership with the French Embassy,” said Sammy Obeng. “The PIPA program provided invaluable perspectives and networking opportunities that we believe can significantly benefit our work at PNAfrica. We look forward to exploring innovative projects and initiatives that can drive positive change in the region.”

The French Ambassador expressed enthusiasm for the ongoing collaboration and highlighted the importance of such partnerships in fostering mutual understanding and development. “France is committed to supporting democratic processes and institutions worldwide. Our collaboration with PNAfrica is a vital part of this mission, and we are keen to explore new ways to work together for the benefit of the people of Ghana and the broader African continent,” he said.

This meeting marks a significant step in the deepening relationship between PNAfrica and the French Embassy in Ghana. Both parties are optimistic about the future and are eager to translate their shared vision into concrete actions that promote transparency, accountability, and effective governance.

As PNAfrica continues to champion the cause of open and responsive parliaments across Africa, support and collaboration with international partners like the French Embassy will be crucial in achieving these goals. The organization remains committed to fostering a culture of democratic governance and empowering citizens to hold their leaders accountable.
