The New Patriotic Party government is committed to developing relations with China since it took office. The cooperation between the two countries has gained a stronger momentum recently. Ambassador Sun hoped that the city of Accra would learn from the successful experience of the City of Shenzhen and make new breakthroughs in urban construction and management.
