Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has challenged the Chinese government to establish more companies rather than importing products into the country.

According to the Asantehene, this would deepen bilateral relations between the two countries.

He made the call when the new Chinese Ambassador to Ghana, Sun Baohong called on him at the Manhyia Palace in Kumasi in the Ashanti region.

The Asantehene added that the move if considered would inure to the mutual benefit of both countries.

He further called on Chinese government to consider establishing a gold refinery in the country to help add value to the commodity.

“You know China and Ghana has had this relationship for all these years, from Kwame Nkrumah’s time to this time…there was a break but now it has been revived again.

“Even with the mining sector for example if we can look at refineries for example instead of exporting the raw materials, these are areas that we should look at” Otumfuo told Baohong.
