Ghana’s ambassador extraordinaire and plenipotentiary to Italy with concurrent accreditation to Slovenia, Serbia, Montenegro and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), Eudora Hilda Quartey-Koranteng, has died.

Sources at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirmed to Asaase Radio that she died on Tuesday (19 October) in Rome.

She recently hosted President Akufo-Addo in Serbia when the president attended the 60th-anniversary celebrations of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) in her concurrent capacity as Ghana’s envoy to Serbia, and was said to be in good health.

Ambassador Quartey-Koranteng was appointed by President Akufo-Addo in 2019.

She assumed office on 11 June 2019 after presenting her letters of credence to President Sergio Mattarella, in the Italian capital, Rome. She was noted for having improved the efficiency of the mission by introducing an effective online and passport printing system.

In one year she had installed and operationalised the embassy’s biometric passport printing system.

The Ghanaian community notably embraced the new regime, recording over 3,000 online passport applications in the first month alone.

Ambassador Quartey-Koranteng succeeded Paulina Patience Abayage, after she was recalled by President Akufo-Addo to serve as the Upper East Regional Minister.
