Ghana Businessman: China Will be Stronger

Ghanaian Manu felt lucky to encounter two Chinese major festivals – Mid-Autumn Day and National Day, during his first visit to China.

Manu is the executive director of a Ghanaian company. He came to China for a training class organized by the Hunan Agricultural Group. 
 
“This is my first time to enjoy mooncakes and appreciate the moon together with friends from 12 African, Central Asian, and Southeast Asian countries; to witness the Hunan people, old and young, who are busy preparing for various celebrations for the National Day. It’s really amazing,” he said excitedly.
 
He is willing to share his stories in China. In his minds, the Chinese people have outstanding quality in many aspects, such as a strong sense of time. “I was once late and missed the breakfast. And worst of all, I had to register on the attendance sheet for my 15-minute late arrival. After then, I am always on time, whether I’m having class or going for field trips.”
 
He thought that, just because of these good habits and outstanding quality, the Chinese people could make remarkable achievements over the past seven decades.

When talked about the “Belt and Road” Initiative, he mentioned that, it aims to facilitate regional integration, and trade and economic development. Based on its implementation, China is expected to become a world leader in promoting trade, investment, and infrastructure construction.
 
The celebration of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China is a new start. In the future, China will be stronger, and more prosperous, he said.
