"Ghanaians are very interested in the model of Air Mauritius, which is a company whose majority shareholder is the government. It is also listed on the Mauritius Stock Exchange. We are a commercial aviation company that creates value for our shareholders. We also have a mandate to contribute to the development of the country."
