Chinese ‘very helpful’ to Ghana: ‘They’ve been our friends, proven to be a strong partner in difficult times’ ~ Akufo-Addo

President Nana Akufo-Addo has said the Chinese have been of immense help to Ghana’s economy and, so, he sees them as friends irrespective of how the West views the Asian giant.

A recent report by the International Monetary Fund said the Chinese are likely to take hold of Ghana’s resources and power revenue as the West African cocoa producer has defaulted in paying some $1.9  billion owed to the People’s Republic of China.

Ghana’s total debt to China is in the region of $5 billion.

Most of it has gone into roads and infrastructure projects.

Speaking at the Qatar Economic Forum in Doha, Mr Akufo-Addo said: “I don’t have any criticisms about Chinese involvement in the Ghanaian economy”.

“They [Chinese] have been very helpful”, he praised, pointing out: “It’s a matter of controversy in the West”.

“For us”, the Ghanaian leader noted, “they have been friends, and, in terms of difficulty, they have proven to be a strong partner”.
