Ghanaian President Nana Akufo-Addo on Sunday received the Vice Premier of the People’s Republic of China, Sun Chunlan, as both countries seek to deepen trade and investment ties.

“On Sunday, 10th November, 2019, I held bilateral discussions with Vice Premier of the People’s Republic of China, Sun Chunlan, aimed at deepening the ties of co-operation between our two countries,” President Akufo-Addo tweeted.

He said the $2 billion Sinohydro deal, and the implementation of agreements reached at the 3rd Forum on China-Africa Co-operation between Ghana and China, were amongst the matters discussed.

Mr. Akufo-Addo who is running for re-election next year is credited with lifting many Ghanaians out of poverty and bolstering the economy.

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.”

Sun Chunlan said the purpose of her visit to Ghana is to see to the implementation and outcomes of the agreements reached between Chinese President, Xi Jinping and President Akufo-Addo, at the 3rd Summit of the Forum on China-Africa Co-operation (FOCAC), held in Beijing in 2018.

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