"Ghana spends a great deal of cash on ECOWAS, AU and all the global associations that we have a place with, but then we don't have numerous individuals presenting with those associations. One reason, I discovered, is that Ghanaians don't have a subsequent language, so they do have any significant bearing and with regard to the shortlisting, they are forgotten about. 


"On the off chance that you give me the gesture, I will have an effect here to guarantee that Ghanaians and ladies get positions in global associations," she said. 


Ms Botchwey was addressing inquiries at the Appointments Committee of Parliament as a feature of his reviewing for the pastoral arrangement. 


Income challenge 


Ms Botchwey noticed that the incomes of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs had been managed a tremendous blow, following the suspension of certain administrations across all the nation's international safe havens and offices across the world because of COVID-19.

She said the international safe havens and offices, notwithstanding, offered the administrations on a crisis premise. 


"With regard to identification and visas, they are in direct contact with individuals so except if it is totally important we have stopped these administrations. Except if the candidate can guarantee us and show verification that the assistance that is required is a crisis administration," she expressed. 


Shutting of records 


Ms Botchwey likewise said the choice of ING Bank to close the records of the Ghana Embassy in Brussels was a choice that came as a shock to the service and till now the bank had not given any explanations behind the activity. 


"The record of consulates, typically, aside from the inflows of remunerations and merchandise and enterprises and in situations where they have accounts that get visa and identification expenses, nothing else experiences them. So it came as an astonishment to us. 


"Eventually, we even needed a joint mission of parliament and the service to go to Brussels to discover, however tragically as a result of COVID-19, we were unable to set out on that mission. Yet, the bank has returned to us to say that it has the privilege to separate from the client, and they have no obligation to offer motivations to the client," the Minister-assign said. 


Ms Botchwey, who involved a similar service in the past government, said to fulfill herself, she requested the bank explanation for all the records that were controlled by the mission, returning three years. 


"We have meticulously experienced each exchange and there is literally nothing untoward, so I am considering what might have been their explanation," she clarified.

Responding to an inquiry on a report from the Auditor General which called attention to that the service was occupied with what it portrayed as uneconomic lease installments, she said, the nation had 58 international safe havens and nine offices around the planet, making it difficult to purchase all its places of business.

Ms Botchwey conceded that for a large number of the nations, Ghana's international safe havens would stay there for an exceptionally significant time-frame to come, and it was significant that the nation discovered lasting methods of guaranteeing that savvy activities. 


"It is hence that when I took over as pastor in 2017, I was extremely glad to discover GH¢50 million from Société Générale that should have been utilized for buys, development and furthermore for restoration of our missions abroad. 


"Properties are pricey and, in this manner, the GH¢50 million is practically depleted, but we actually have a great deal of consulates that are leasing their chanceries just as homes for the envoys as well as for staff. 


"My first method of managing it will be to locate some more cash to completely buy every one of our properties abroad and redesign them to ensure that they are good for reason," Ms Botchwey expressed.
