In a statement, the presidency in Ghana said the Chinese Vice Premier, Sun Chunlan, applauded the stability of the Ghanaian economy and development taking place under President Akufo-Addo.

She was quoted as telling the Ghanaian leader: “under your leadership, the Ghanaian government is pressing ahead with reforms, the growth of the economy, and the improvement of people’s lives”.

“Stability and development have become the proud highlights of your government. As your true and sincere friends, China feels very happy to see the achievements you have made, and wish your country even greater achievements in national development.”

“This will deepen the practical relationship between Ghana and China and take the relationship between our two countries to new heights,” she added.
