Dr Benjamin Anyagri, the General Secretary of the Ghana China Friendship Association (GHACHIFA), said a Ghana-China business desk should be established to ensure smooth trade between the two countries.
He said the desk could help to ensure that all setbacks were effectively dealt with for both countries to make huge gains from their relationship.
“With a lot more focus, Ghana stands to gain immensely from China. We should build well on the relationship and understand what each other wants,” Dr Anyagri said in an interview with the Ghana News Agency.
He said whilst China was already assisting Ghana in several areas of national endeavour such as construction, education, and trade, it was important for Ghana to ensure that bottlenecks in her trade with China were removed.
Dr. Anyagri said the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre, for example, could identify and correct cumbersome procedures that could frustrate Chinese businessmen in their operations in Ghana.
He said good customer care approach was needed to ensure that Chinese business partners in Ghana went through the needed procedures with ease.
Dr Anyagri said: “GHACHIFA’s role is to be an advocacy group to ensure that Ghanaians at the grassroots gain from the Ghana-China relations.”
