MIGRATION ISSUE IMPORTANT TO EU

 

EU

The Head of the European Union (EU) Ghana, H.E. William Hanna, says a mechanism that allows effective legal mobility and fits 21st century must be put in place to stem irregular migration and the exploitation of people.


He said Mobility can benefit both Europe and Africa but it must be done legally and safely and not to turn the Mediterranean and the Sahara into mass graves.

According to him, migration and refugee flow are a phenomenon that concerns both Europe and Africa especially origin, transit as well as destination countries.

H.E. WILLIAM HANNA

In a speech read on his behalf at the inception workshop to commence the process to evaluate GIS Strategic Plan 2011-2015 and to draft a new strategic plan, he said to do this, there should be a focus on five clusters of actions such as addressing root causes of irregular migration and forced displacement, legal migration and mobility, protection and asylum, fight against irregular migration and return, as well as readmission and reintegration.


He said the right approach is to develop a common instrument to efficiently manage migration phenomenon that has become a threat for both Africa and Europe, and therefore sees this workshop by the GIS as timely and a step in the right direction to deal with this canker.


Mr. Hanna was pleased that the GIS had benefited from the EU-ECOWAS regional support which is complimentary to the bilateral cooperation between EU- Ghana on migration.
