The Chinese Ambassador to Ghana, Shi Ting Wang, says they are ready to support Ghana in the fight against illegal mining.
Mr. Shi Ting Wang claims environmental protection is of equal importance to China as it is to Ghana, adding that China is ready to help Ghana fight the menace.
Although, Chinese nationals have been the most involved in illegal mining activities, the country’s Ambassador said they said are ready to help Ghana fight the menace.
Speaking after paying a courtesy call on the Minister for Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey last week, Mr. Wang said China will ensure that all agreements it has signed with Ghana are of mutual benefit.
Meanwhile, government has recently revealed that the ban on small-scale mining will soon be lifted after a roadmap is rolled out.
We’ll keep our fingers clenched to see what unfolds.
