France has expressed its unflinching confidence in Ghana's economy. This explains why French investors continue to invest heavily in the country.

The Prime Minister of France, Mario Valls told the media on arrival at the jubilee lounge in Accra for a two day state visit to Ghana that France through its Agency for international development is committed to the bilateral relations with Ghana.

President Mahama has on two occasions this year met with president François Hollande and discussed issues of importance to the two countries. The visit by the French prime Minister is a follow up of those visits and will therefore go a long to cement the bilateral relations between the two countries.

He said Ghana's critical role at the UN is also another basis for the increased cordial relations between Ghana and France. He said France see Ghana as a reliable ally on issues of international importance, citing Ghana's immense role during the COP 21 in Paris recently.

Mr Valls said Africa is a rising continent and that is why France wants to invest in the continent.

That is the reason why it has moved from the relations it has with it colonies on the continent and spreading its cooperation with both Portuguese and English speaking African countries.
