In an announcement on the 18th August 2016 the Ireland announced that it had concluded negotiations on a new DTT with Ghana. No details of the treaty itself are yet available. This adds to the 9 existing treaties that Ghana has concluded most of which are with European countries.
It is also further evidence that Ireland appears to be building out a treaty network in Africa, as Ireland has recently also signed treaties with Botswana, Zambia, Morocco and is negotiating with Ethiopia.
Ireland also announced that it is negotiating with Oman.
We applaud Ireland finally paying attention to Africa. It has built up a very large aircraft leasing business with a world-wide focus but until now has ignored that part of the world which can make life very difficult for those aircraft operating companies which deal with Africa.
