A Ghana News Agency (GNA) has reportedly announced an interest to run a specialized newsdesk dedicated to all things related to the Ghana-China relations and and China's relations with the rest of Africa.

According to a report on Xinhua.com, the General Manager, Bernard Otabil made this known on Thursday when Wang Sheng, Counselor and Head of Political Section at the Chinese Embassy in Accra, paid a courtesy call on him at the agency's headquarters.

According to the report, Mr. Otabil also spoke on China's ever-growing influence in Africa, stating that there was the need for institutions on both sides to collaborate to meet the information needs of their peoples.

"China is a big space in Ghana and Africa, and the GNA would in its own small way do its best to promote the sharing of information on business and investment opportunities both in Ghana and China for the benefit of the business community," he said.

On his part, Wang observed that this year marked the 55th anniversary of the establishment of bilateral relations between China and Ghana.

He mentioned an agreement of collaboration signed between the Xinhua News Agency of China and the Ghana News Agency in January 2013, and said the Chinese Embassy would work to facilitate the sharing of news and information between the two news agencies.

"There are a lot of positive developments, and I think our focus should be turned on those positive achievements which will enable us to forge a stronger bond of friendship and cooperation between our two countries," he added.
