Since China and Ghana established a diplomatic relation which dates back to 1960, the two countries have laid a solid cornerstone for the development of their bilateral ties.

Over the past years, China has aided Ghana in the construction of some recreational and economic projects such as the National Theatre, the Afife Irrigation Project, the Ledzokuku-Krowor District (LEKMA) Hospital, the Ofankor-Nsawam stretch of the Accra-Kumasi Road, the Kumasi Youth Centre, the Office Block of the Ministry of Defence,many rural basic schools and the Complex of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration.

The newest project granted the Chinese government is the expansion of the New Century Career Training Institute (NCCTI) in Accra constructed by China State Hualong Construction.

Currently, the institute has been turned into a comprehensive career training institute for both technical and vocational and junior high school.

Officials of the China State Hualong Construction Company in Ghana have begun a tour of the project being initiated by the Chinese government.

Some of the places visited were the National Theatre, Lekma Hospital at Teshie, Sanboa Pharmaceuticals Limited in Tema, Kpong Water Project, Asogli Power Terminal, Kpong Water Project, Cape Coast Stadium and Bui Dam.

At the NCCTI at Dansoman, the Deputy Manager of China State Hualong Construction Ghana, Mr Zhang Shixiong, said the career institute was a project established to help Ghana in its employment and educational reforms.

He said the institute, which was initiated by the Chinese government, was to help Ghana to achieve self-development through career training.

Mr Shixiong added that the company had been in the country for 25 years and had contributed to vulnerable groups.

The Manager of the NCCTI, Ms Lydia Duvor, expressed delight following an expansion of the school which was established in 2000.

She said the school offered 10 programmes, including health care and other core subjects and has a student population of 465.

She said the school had a mandate to train students to be employable and also establish themselves after their education.

Sheadded that the school still grappled with problems such as lack of staff members, reading material, as well as equipment for practical work.
