Chinese delegation explores investment potentials in Ghana’s energy sector

The China Chamber of Commerce on Thursday paid a visit to the Ministry of Energy in Accra to explore potential areas of investment in the energy sector.

A statement from the Communications Unit of the Ministry of Energy on Friday said the delegation was led by the Director-General of the Department of Commerce of the Jilin Province of China, Mr Wang Fu yi.

The statement said the delegation discussed with officials of the ministry areas in the power and petroleum sectors where mutually beneficial agreements could be reached.

Mr Wang said Ghana’s credentials in governance and resource management over the years made her an attractive destination for investors.

He said the delegation was in the country to explore various business avenues to enhance the already cordial relations the two countries enjoyed, adding that the discussions would establish a channel of communication between the ministry and the Jilin Province and would be the foundation for other exchanges.

Mr Wang invited officials of the ministry to visit the Jilin Province of China in September this year for its trade and investment fair.

The Chief Director of the Ministry of Energy, Professor Thomas Mba Akabzaa, who represented the Minister, acknowledged the relations between the two countries and expressed the hope that the interaction would yield fruitful results.

He told the delegation that various opportunities exist within the power and petroleum sectors, which could be explored to the benefit of the two countries.

Prof Akabzaa called on officials from both sides to continue with the interactions and come to concrete agreements.
