The Chinese Ambassador to Ghana has promised to make the Central Region a popular name in China to attract the needed investors and tourists.
According to him, the lifestyle and the cultural, historical and tourism treasures the region has should excite every Chinese investor and tourist.
“We have had discussions on how to make this region very popular in China. This region is very famous because you have the Cape Coast Castle, a great historical significance in a famous place (Cape Coast),” he noted.
“This is a peaceful region; this is a place that has fertile lands and all the good people coupled with a very good investment environment,” he indicated.
Shi Ting Wang has given the assurance that, in the future, he will not only encourage more Chinese investors to come to the Central Region to explore the investment opportunities but also encourage more Chinese tourists to come to the region because the region has the greatest tourism resources in the country.
Central Regional Minister, Kwamena Duncan, on his part, thanked the Chinese Ambassador for his interest in the region and asked for more support to help develop the region. Of particular interest to the Minister was the value addition to the development of ceramics in the region.
He praised the Chinese for their partnership and support in building the Kotokuraba Market, the Cape Coast Sports Stadium and other facilities in the region. “We are eternally grateful but we are asking for more support. We see a viable partner in you,” he said.
