ACCRA, Ghana—News reports Ghana revealed that China’s 300-community satellite television project for the West African nation has completed. The project began since September last year.
At the turnover ceremony last Friday, Chinese Ambassador to Ghana Wang Shiting underscored the need for Ghana and China to work together to eliminate the digital divide.
“Since our poor communities still lack the ability to have the whole world in view, as well as the means to participate in cultural exchanges, let us work hard together to eliminate the digital divide,” Wang said.
According to Ghana’s Deputy Minister for Communications George Andah, the project completion was another step in the strengthening of the strong relations between Ghana and China.
The deputy minister said through the project, 660 Ghanaians received technical training on the installation of satellite dishes. Adding, this has given them skills to set up their own installation businesses.
