SOUNDBITE (ENGLISH): SUN BOUHANG, Chinese Ambassador to Ghana
“After dozens of years of independence, many African countries cannot attain economic independence with heavy reliance on foreign capital, technology and even trade terms. The economic structure is still unitary and distorted. Looking ahead, China will continue to support African countries in pursuing economic liberation and bring progress and prosperity to their people so that Africa’s independence is rooted in a more solid and stable footing.”
Sun made the remarks on Wednesday at the official opening of a three-day Economic Ideas Festival, themed “Ideas To Transform a Rising Africa”.
The three-day festival draws representatives from 17 African countries.
