The Ambassador


H.E. Mr. Frank Okyere

His Excellency Mr. Frank Okyere was born on 18th June, 1948, in Kumasi, Ghana. He attended the Tavistock Hall in Heathfield, Sussex in the UK for his secondary school, and then proceeded to Caius College, Shoreham-by–Sea in Hampshire for his ‘A’ Level. For his university education, H.E. Mr. Okyere attended the City of London College, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics and Planning in 1976.

Before his appointment as Ambassador of Ghana to Japan in 2018, His Excellency Frank Okyere worked in the well-established family-owned business, then known as Oyoko Contractors from 1977, first as a Project Manager, then in 1988, Project Director, then rising through the ranks to come the Managing Director in 1999, in the now Oyoko Europarts Ltd.

H. E. Frank Okyere’s experience in the Private Sector provides an ideal basis in serving as Ambassador, because his affinity with the private sector, ensures that Ghana will benefit greatly from his networking and cooperation with Japanese and Singaporean business. It is upon such foundations that the Government’s vision to have a ‘Ghana Beyond Aid,’ can be tangibly realised.
