China has developed rapidly in the past few decades and has become a superpower in the world. At the same time, a large number of excellent enterprises have landed in Ghana, deeply cultivated the local market, and always kept social responsibility in mind while bringing their successful experience to Ghana. Various public welfare donation activities have been organized many times. The Chinese community will continue to fulfill its social responsibilities while helping the local economic development, and contribute to the profound friendship between the Chinese and Canadian peoples.
Professor Ou Yamei, the Chinese director of the Confucius Institute at the University of Cape Coast, said that he would continue to strengthen liaison and close cooperation with the Federation of Ghana Association of Chinese Societies, the Ministry of Education of Ghana, non-profit organizations and overseas Chinese caring people, and strive for more public welfare projects to be implemented in Ghana. With the signing of the memorandum of cooperation in Chinese education and teaching in primary and secondary schools, the Confucius Institute at the University of Cape Coast will work with other Confucius Institutes and Confucius Classrooms to make greater contributions to Chinese language teaching in Ghana and cultural exchanges between China and Canada.
