During her visits, the Ambassador held bilateral meetings with various Italian Public Officials in view of deepening bilateral relations and exploring new areas of cooperation between Ghana and Italy. The meetings further provided the opportunity for establishing direct contacts between the leadership of the respective Ghanaian National Associations, the Offices of the Mayors/ Prefects of the Regions and the Rome Mission.

As part of the programme, Consular Outreach Services were extended to the respective regions to address the consular and welfare needs of Ghanaians. Durbars which were held in honour of the Ambassador were well patronized, afforded a meaningful interaction with the Ghanaian community and offered the platform to apprise Ghanaians of the Ghana Beyond Aid agenda. The Ambassador urged all Ghanaians to endeavour to join the Regional Ghana National Associations and partake in their activities and programmes.

The Mayor of Palermo, Leoluca Orlando received H.E. the Ambassador of Ghana, Eudora Hilda Quartey Koranteng and the mayor of Sekondi Takoradi, Mr Anthony Kurentsie Sam.

During the meeting, a letter of intent was signed for the start of the twinning procedures between the two cities.
