Discussions on debt-related issues, economic changes, and cooperative tactics for long-term financial management make this meeting extremely important.

Much of Ghana’s $20 billion external debt has been designated for restructuring and is held by the Official Creditor Committee (OCC), which is co-chaired by the governments of China and France.
