Mr Dedong, who is also the MD of the China Energy International Group Company Limited, Ghana and the Deputy MD of the China Energy International Group Northwest Africa, said, “in addition, the members of the Chamber also actively donated more than 20 times in helping Ghana fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Medical Superintendent at the Ga East Municipal Hospital, Dr Ebenezer Oduro-Mensah, lauded the CECCG for the kind gesture and assured the funds donated will be put into good use.
