Bilateral relations between Ghana and India
   
Ghana's diplomatic presence in India was established in 1957, shortly after Ghana's independence. Before then, India had established, in 1953, a Consulate-General in Ghana. Indeed, relations between Ghana and India date back to the early fifties when the late Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana's first President struck a personal and strong bond of friendship with the late Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, India's first Prime Minster.

Ghana and India share common aspirations and positions on many issues of international concern and their respective membership of several international organizations, notably the United Nations, the Commonwealth, and the Non-Aligned Movement, of which both countries are founding members, have further deepened the excellent bilateral relations that exist between the two countries.

In the immediate post-independence era up to the early nineties, bilateral relations between Ghana and India were heavily steeped in political and cultural matters. In recent years, however, buoyed by the economic aspirations of the peoples of the two countries and the intersecting interest of the business communities of both Ghana and India, economic relations have assumed a much higher and mutually beneficial dimension in bilateral relations.
