“Apart from the fact that Ghanaians are very hard workers, there is also a lot of room for industrial development in Ghana,” he said.
Mr. Xu was speaking to journalists in Tema, during a media familiarization tour of the Sentuo steel manufacturing company.
He said apart from promoting Ghana’s economy and creating employment for several Ghanaians, the company also provided a platform for international cooperation.
Mr. Xu said Ghana continued to experience economic growth, “which is evident by the abundant on-going infrastructure constructions and rapid increase in foreign direct investment.”
He said Sentuo was fully prepared to embrace “these great opportunities and challenges,” and provide high quality steel products and services to meet the West African Market.
