Mr. Yang Qun, the Chairman, led discussions on the company’s investments in Ghana. Mrs. Khadija Torbay Lartey then gave an overview of the company and its future plans in renewable energy. Sunon Asogli Power, according to the Chairman, is one of the best and most successful Chinese-invested enterprises in Ghana, as well as one of China’s largest investments in Ghana. He hopes that with Ghana’s growing relationship and friendship with China, China will invest approximately USD1 billion in Ghana’s economy.
Dr. Hammond was overjoyed to visit the plant and learn firsthand about the company’s investment in Ghana’s power sector. He stated that as the government’s representative in China, it was his responsibility to remind the Ghanaian government of the good works that the company and China are doing in the country. He understands that the two countries’ relationship dates back over 60 years, and that the actions of a few people should not be used to break it. He stated that it was critical to strengthen the friendship between the two countries and reminded the company to increase technological development and training capacity for its Ghanaian employees.
