Senior Chinese official Zhou Yongkang met with a delegation from the National Democratic Congress (NDC) of Ghana on Friday, calling for closer party exchanges between the two countries.

Zhou, a Standing Committee member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, said Ghana was one of the first African countries to forge diplomatic ties with China, and was also the first country that late Chinese premier Zhou Enlai visited during his first African tour in 1964.

The two countries will celebrate the 50th anniversary of diplomatic ties next month. Zhou said the two countries supported each other and had conducted fruitful economic cooperation over the years.

He briefed the guests about China's remarkable achievements since its founding and especially the reform and opening-up. He added there was still a long way to go before the country could achieve common prosperity for its 1.3 billion population.

CPC regard it a major task to keep its flesh-and-blood ties with the people and gradually root out corruption, Zhou said, adding the party would like to enhance exchanges with the NDC to further boost bilateral relations.

Kwabena Adjei, NDC national chairman and head of the delegation, said he was enjoying his current China tour, and his country was proud of China's development which offers a great example for developing countries including Ghana.

The NDC hopes to learn from the CPC about governance and party building, he said, urging closer bilateral cooperation in areas such as human resource development, information technology and energy.
