Vice-Premier Sun Chunlan met with President of Ghana Nana Akufo-Addo and held talks with Vice-President Mahamudu Bawumia in Accra, Ghana, on Nov 10-11.

China and Ghana have a longstanding friendship, and in recent years especially, close communications between top leaders of the two countries have significantly enhanced political mutual trust and encouraged a boom in pragmatic cooperation, said Sun.

The two sides need to deepen that political mutual trust, drive synergy between their development strategies, further share experience in State governance, and participate in international affairs with close coordination, the vice-premier said, mentioning the good timing for this offered by the 60th anniversary of diplomatic ties next year.

She also called for efforts to push bilateral relations to wider areas and deeper levels in a new situation shaped by the anniversary celebration, in addition to the Belt and Road Initiative and the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation.

China will welcome Ghana’s active moves to seize opportunities for market, investment and growth as it charts a new path to all-around opening-up, she added.

For his part, Akufo-Addo said Ghana is committed to cementing the deep, friendly relationship between the two countries. Ghana is willing to work more collaboratively with China, in a bid to make more of the results from the Beijing Summit of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation become reality in his country.

Bawumia said Ghana would like to boost exchanges and partnership in all fields and promote bilateral ties to new heights in line with the consensus reached by the two heads of State.

During her visit, Sun also sent greetings to the Chinese medical team working in Ghana.
