THE Chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, Mr Yu Zhengsheng, yesterday toured the Jospong Industrial Park as part of his four-day working visit to Ghana.
Mr Yu commended the Jospong Group for contributing not just to the waste management sector but also in the manufacturing industry, saying it deserved to be applauded and encouraged.
He said China would continue to support the company in its operations, and advised other organizations to emulate its example.
Dr Joseph Siaw Agyepong, Executive Chairman of the Jospong Group of Companies, said the company had benefited substantially from the relationship between Ghana and China through technical and financial support.
He stated that the Jospong Industrial Park was a direct manifestation of the partnership with China, as most of the equipment and technology for setting up the park came from China.
Dr Siaw-Agyepong thanked both the Chinese and Ghana government for the tremendous support they had given to Jospong Group of Companies.
He added that Jospong Group, which started as a modest company 10 years ago, had created over 250,000 jobs in partnership with government, through sustained and innovative strategies.
The group, he said, had also extended its service beyond Ghana, and was operating in five African countries, the Middle East and Asia.
The ceremony attracted both local and international personalities, including the Chinese Ambassador to Ghana, Madam Sun Boahong, Ghana’s Ambassador to China, Mr Anani Okuminyi, the Speaker of Parliament, Mr Edward Doe Adjaho, and some staff of the Chinese Embassy.
