KRIF Ghana Limited, leaders in the supply of Office Stationery and Equipment in Ghana has held a valedictory dinner in honour of the outgoing Ambassador of Israel to Ghana at the Golden Tulip Hotel in Accra.

Kennedy Okosun, the Executive Chairman of Krif Ghana Limited, speaking at the occasion, commended Her Excellency, Ambassador Bar-li for her contributions towards the socio-economic development of Ghana in the four-year period of her of duty as envoy of the State of Israel.

Mr. Okosun noted the robust relationship that evolved between Ghana and Israel thus strengthening involvement in areas of infrastructure, investments and business.

Krif Ghana Limited, he further stated, was motivated to honour Ambassador Bar-Li with the send-off dinner as an honour and commendation for her good work in Ghana.

Mr. Okosun added that for over four decades before now, Israel did not have a mission in Ghana.

Ambassador Bar-Li came to Ghana to re-establish Israeli presence in what is now a full-fledged embassy in Ghana. Previously Ghanaians travelling to Israel had to go to the Israel Embassy in Nigeria or La Côte d’Ivoire the Ivory Coast

Mr. Okosun intimated that Israel having made giant strides in Agriculture, being one of the few countries in the world with self sufficiency in agricultural produce, should support West African countries in this area. Only recently, the Minister of Agriculture, honourable Fiifi Kwetey, was a guest of the Israeli government.

Through the relentless efforts of Ambassador Bar-Li, stronger bonds in bi-lateral relations have been built between Ghana & Israel.

Mrs. Bar-Li commended Krif Ghana for the honour done her. She said she came to Ghana as Israels Ambassador but was leaving as Ghana’s Ambassador.

She thanked Ghanaians for facilitating her work, while commending the people of Ghana for the proverbial hospitality. This she said made her work easier.

Also present at the dinner were Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams, Honourable Ekwow Spio Garbrah, Minister of Trade and Industry, The German Ambassador and his wife as well as the Nigerian High Commissioner and his wife among other notable dignitaries.
