Ghana lauds Chinese gov't for commitment to socio-economic development
ACCRA, Sept. 28 (Xinhua) -- Chinese embassy to Ghana held a reception on Friday to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China.
Speaking to guests at the celebration, Chinese ambassador to Ghana Wang Shiting said China would continue to share its development dividends with other countries in the world.
"The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) is one of the major international goods provided by China. The BRI is the belt of hope, and the road of mutual benefit," the ambassador said.
Through the BRI, Wang said Africa had been witnessing transformation in areas such as new roads and new railways which had been connecting different regions on the continent.
Delivering Ghana's goodwill message to China, Minister for Defence Dominic Nitiwul described China's transformation from a poor agrarian society to one of the most powerful economies in the world, as a miracle.
He lauded the Chinese government for its commitment to Ghana's socio-economic development, demonstrated through the numerous investments in sectors including energy, infrastructure, education, and health care in the country.
He reaffirmed the principles of solidarity, mutual trust, and respect which have anchored bilateral relationship during the past years.
