Ministry Of Justice Receives Office Equipment From Chinese Embassy

The Ministry of Justice and Attorney-General’s Department has received office equipment from the Chinese Embassy in Accra yesterday.


The items included ten laptops, five desktop computers, four printers and two UPS Systems. Making the presentation, the Chinese Ambassador to Ghana, H.E. Sun Baohong, expressed the condolences of the President and People of China to Ghana on the tragic aftermath of the flood disaster.


H.E. Baohong stated that the donation, though limited, reflected the Chinese Embassy’s sincere desire to support the capacity building of the Ministry. She said this year marked the 55th Anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Ghana, adding that bilateral relations had kept strong momentum of growth and yielded abundant results to the interest of both countries.


“With a bilateral trade volume surpassing 5 billion USD each year, with China’s non-financial FDI toward Ghana exceeding 230 million USD last year, with more than tens of thousands of nationals in each other’s country, it is very important for us to administer and regulate the exchange and cooperation through legal means,” she said. H.E. Baohung added that legitimate interests would be protected, healthy market order would be maintained, transnational crime would be fought and social justice and equity would be ensured.


The Minister for Justice and Attorney-General, Hon Marietta Brew-Opong, thanked the Ambassador for the donation, adding that it marked another milestone in the area of co-operation between them. She stated that Ghana and China had enjoyed a long history of diplomatic relations with Ghana being one of the first countries in sub-Saharan Africa to establish those links.


“We have enjoyed years of fruitful co-operation in the fields of economy, trade, health and education, among others. Even though in the past there has been some challenges, both countries have remained committed to ensuring that those challenges do not mar the relationship but result in avenues for better collaboration between the two countries. We appreciate that,” she noted.


The Minister also used the occasion to express Ghana’s condolences to the people of China for the loss of lives in the China ferry disaster, where a ship capsized on the Yangtze River last week.
