<p class="">Recently, the two countries signed eight Co-operation Agreements and Memoranda of Understanding, in different sectors of their respective economies, aimed at deepening the ties of co-operation and the bonds of friendship that exist between the two countries.</p>

<p class="">One of the many agreements that made the news is the $2 billion infrastructure support deal that will see Ghana give away major parts of its Bauxite concessions to be mined by China.</p>
