At the ceremony, Chinese Ambassador to Ghana, Sun Baohong, praised the firm for the donations which she said were “a result of the friendship between Ghana and China.”

“Over the past 55 years since the establishment of diplomatic relations, bilateral relations have registered fruitful results. We have enjoyed very close bilateral exchange of visits. China is one of the most important trading partners for Ghana,” Sun said.

She lauded the Chinese company for its engagement in social work in Ghana, saying it is not the first time the firm had made donations to Ghana’s police.

Noting that Chinese President Xi Jinping and Ghanaian President John Mahama had reached broad consensus on bilateral cooperation on the sidelines of a China-Africa summit in South Africa early this month, Sun pledged the efforts of the Chinese mission in Ghana to bring about the implementation of cooperation projects.

The two leaders, according to the ambassador, have agreed to consolidate cooperation in fighting crimes, and the Chinese side has pledged more training opportunities and capacity building programs for Ghana’s police.

Ghana’s Inspector General of Police, John Kudalor, described the donations as “timely and wonderful.”

“China has not relented in its cooperation with Ghana. The Ghana Police Service has benefited a lot of cooperation with the Chinese government. I remember as the Director General of operations, we had three or four courses organized for us by the Chinese government,” Kudalor said.

“Caitec has supported us in numerous ways,” he added.

He later told Xinhua that the motorbikes would help the police service in their fight against crimes.
