For recent years, China-Ghana cultural and people-to-people exchanges have kept heating up, and our cooperation in the field of culture, education and sports has become increasingly closer. The Chinese Embassy will continue to strengthen cooperation with AMA and make more contributions to China-Ghana friendship.
