It is with deep sadness that the Ghana High Commission in London announces the demise of Ambassador James Emmanuel Kwegyir Aggrey-Orleans, which sad event occurred on November 19, 2018.

Ambassador Aggrey-Orleans joined the Administrative Class of the Ghana Foreign and Diplomatic Service in 1963 and became well known for his professionalism and versatility.

The highlights of his distinguished career include his role as Ghana’s High Commissioner to the United Kingdom between 1997 to 2001, and his appointment as Acting Clerk to Parliament and Head of the Parliamentary Service.

He was also appointed and served as Assistant Director (In-Chargeof the Economic, Information and Market Intelligence Division) of the international Tropical Timber Organisation (ITTO), a commodity organisation established in 1987 by the United Nations (UN) to promote tropical Forest Conservation and Timber trade.

Ambassador Aggrey-Orleans is remembered for maintaining very close links with the Ministry even after his voluntary retirement.

On behalf of the High Commissioner of Ghana to the UK, HE Papa Owusu-Ankomah, the entire management and staff, the Hon. Minister for Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration,we extend to Mrs Aggrey-Orleans and the bereaved family our deepest condolences.

May the soul of Ambassador James Emmanuel Kwegyir Aggrey-Orleans Rest in Perfect Peace
