The GDN delegation finally paid a courtesy call on the current Ghanaian Ambassador to the Netherlands, Her Excellency Mrs. Sophia Horner-Sam and Mrs Doris Breese, the deputy head of mission at the Ghanaian Embassy in the Hague, who reckoned the importance of Design and the Creative Industry and the role it plays in National development.
