Minister lauds China's achievements

Accra, Sept. 30, GNA - The Minister of Water Resources, Works and Housing, Mr. Albert Abongo, has lauded China's achievements over the past 60 years and attributed it to reform and its open policy. These achievements, he said, posed a challenge to Ghana to sustain its development model to enable it to provide public goods and services and as well as ensure equitable distribution of state resources. Mr. Abongo said this at China's 60th National Day reception that forms part of activities marking the country's 60th anniversary celebration, which falls on October 01.

He said China's socio-economic development had given credence to the assumption that transparency, good governance and leadership were relevant to prosperity and urged those in leadership positions to uphold the principles of selflessness, probity and accountability. The Chinese Ambassador in Ghana, Mr. Yu Wenzhe, said nine Chinese doctors would soon arrive in Ghana to work at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital. He said the Chinese government would, by the end of the year, donate anti-malaria drugs to Ghana. Mr. Yu catalogued China's assistance to Ghana in education, capacity building health and infrastructure and praised Ghana for its democratic credentials. 30 Sept 09
