The First Lady, Mrs Rebecca Akufo-Addo, has urged Ghanaians living and working in China to project the good name of Ghana as they seek more knowledge to help develop the country.
‘There is a lot to learn from China, therefore, those of you here should learn and bring the knowledge back home to improve the country,’ she said.
The First Lady made the appeal to officials of the Ghana Embassy in China when she addressed them as part of her eight-day official trip to that country.
She noted that back home in Ghana, things were looking good for the country with President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, now in charge.
She said: ‘The President came to office with a lot of promises and he is working hard to achieve all of them. He has achieved quite a lot since taking office.’
The first Lady noted that with a determined and focused person like the President steering affairs, there ‘is a lot of hope for Ghana and things are already looking good for Ghana.’
Meanwhile, Mrs Akufo-Addo has announced that the newly constructed Mother and Baby Unit at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi, which was facilitated by the Rebecca Foundation, would be inaugurated by the close of the year.
She said after the inauguration of the KATH facility, her next stop would be the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital.
Ghana’s Ambassador to China, Mr Edward Boateng, assured the First Lady that he and his staff would not disappoint the President but would work hard to bring more investment into the country and cater for the well-being of Ghanaians in China.
The First Lady is in China with a group of women entrepreneurs, some members of the Association of Ghana Industries and academia to explore investment opportunities for women businesses and Ghana in totality.
