She recently hosted President Nana Akufo-Addo in Serbia while the President was in Serbia for the 60th anniversary of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), and she was stated to be in good health.

President Akufo-Addo named Ambassador Koranteng in 2019.

She took office on June 11, 2019, in the Italian city of Rome, after giving her letters of credence to President Sergio Mattarella. She was credited with increasing the Mission’s productivity by implementing an efficient online and passport printing system.

The Ghanaian society has largely accepted the new regime, with over 3,000 (3000) online passport applications being submitted in the first month alone.
