Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, Asantehene, has appealed to the Chinese Ambassador in Ghana to use his good offices to promote the development of technical education in Ghana. He said technical education was crucial to identifying the socio-economic potentials of the nation as well as the effective utilization of our human and natural resources and therefore needed to be intensified to enable the nation reach a middle income status by 2015. Otumfuo Osei Tutu made the call when Mr. Yu Wenzne, Chinese Ambassador to Ghana paid a courtesy call on him at the Manhyia Palace in Kumasi at the weekend. The Asantehene recalled his visit to China in October last year and saw how that country had advanced in areas of technology which he said could be transferred to Ghana to train the youth, and stressed that it was about time that Africans used the resources at their own disposal to develop their own economies. He stressed that, he was currently advocating for the training of the Ghanaian youth in technical education so that the country’s middle level man-power base could be strengthened. Otumfuo Osei Tutu noted with delight the fact that under President John Agyekum Kufour’s government the relationship between Ghana and China had blossomed which was epitomized in the number of projects Chinese companies were engaged in. Mr. Wenzne commended the Asantehene for his good leadership qualities and said China was committed to collaborating with Ghana to enable the nation to realize her development goals.
