    Background: The first Tanzanian High Commissioner to Ghana -- Mr. Paul Muro -- and the new Rumanian Ambassador, Mr. Octavian Carare, presented their credentials to the Ghanaian Head of State, Colonel Ignatius Acheampong, at Castle Osu in Accra, capital of Ghana, on Friday (22 February).

    Mr. Muro reviewed a guard of honour mounted by the Fifth Infantry Brigade of the Ghanaian Army. Then he entered the castle and presented his Letter of Credence from Tanzanian President Julius Nyerere.

    He made a short speech in which he expressed his pride at being appointed the first Tanzanian High Commissioner to Ghana and pointed out the significance of his appointment for African Unity. He offered special praise for Ghana's policy of self-reliance and her 'Operation Feed Yourself' programme.

    One the same day the new Rumanian Ambassador, Mr. Octavian Carare, presented his letter of accreditation from Rumanian President Nicolae Ceausescu. He said that Rumania, being itself a developing state, fully understood Ghana's struggle to expand industrially. He added that Rumania was especially interested in countries who wanted to maintain their sovereignty and economic independence.
