President John Evans Atta Mills has expressed a strong hope in the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) of getting stronger and spending less time on conflict resolution to forge an accelerated development of the sub-region.

He expressed concern about the evil effects of conflicts and urged the new hierarchy of the sub-regional body to continue with efforts at reducing conflicts for the benefit of the people.

The President made the call on Tuesday when Dr Desire Ouedraogo, the new President of the ECOWAS Commission, who is on a two-day visit to Ghana for the Second China- ECOWAS Forum, led a delegation to pay a courtesy call on the President at the Castle, Osu.

President Mills congratulated the delegation on their assumption of office and expressed his support to the forum.

“We in Ghana believe in ECOWAS and have the fullest confidence in you and your colleagues to continue with the work that you are doing,” President Mills said.

Dr Ouedraogo expressed appreciation for the welcome accorded him and his delegation and thanked the President for the high level representation through the Vice President and Foreign Affairs Minister at the Forum.
