The Minority Leader and Member for Tamale South, Hon. Haruna Iddrisu, through the Chinese Ambassador to Ghana, has appealed to the China Republic to support Parliament in subscribing to the new 5G Lit technology to speed up their internet system.
He made this humble appeal to the Chinese Ambassador to Ghana Mr Shi Ting Wang, when he lead a delegation to a courtesy visit to the leadership of Ghana’s Parliament.
The Minority Leader emphasized that the House will remain committed in strengthening and deepening the bond between the two countries.
Hon. Iddrisu stated that China has executed itself as a friend to Ghana in terms of infrastructure support such as the Bui Dam, Atuabo Gas Plant and rural electrification.
In his submission, he added that the trade relations between Ghana and China stands at US $5.6 billion and that, Ghana’s export to China stands at US$1. 4 billion out of the total amount of the trade relations.
“Some of our traders travel to China purposely to engage in international trade. They have no intentions of staying in your country. We want your embassy to give them fair treatment. The delays at the embassy in issuance of visas need to be looked at. They should be given some level of respect”. He lamented.
He told the China delegation that Parliament needs an enhancement in the fibre infrastructure to deliver its mandates effectively.
