Sixty Ghanaian students have been granted Chinese government scholarships for the 2015-2016 academic year.

The Chinese government has also provided new furniture, equipment for skill-training and two generator sets for the training centre. (Xinhua/Lin Xiaowei)

The students came through heated competitions to win the scholarships to pursue further studies in China in various fields.

At a reception for the students in Accra Friday night, the Chinese Ambassador to Ghana Sun Baohong reiterated the importance of deepening cooperation between China and Ghana on education.

“I firmly believe you will integrate your personal ideal with the grand cause of the transformation of Ghana, and by applying what you have learnt in China, contribute your due share to the national development and social progress of your motherland,” Sun said.

The deputy minister for pre-tertiary Education Alex Kyeremeh was grateful to the Chinese government for the scholarships and various supports to the sector saying they have greatly impacted positively on Ghana’s human resource and economic development.

He advised the students to comport themselves in a worthy manner befitting the status of ambassadors since they are now ambassadors of Ghana.

Esther Nuekie Annang, on behalf of the beneficiaries, thanked the Chinese government for the opportunity.
The students will join a large group of over 3,700 Ghanaian students studying in China. Enditem
