Ghana's Ambassador to China, Edward Boateng, says Ghana must learn from China's development strategies which has seen it develop rapidly over the last 40 years.

These include the One Child Policy which helped control the population.

His comments come after the Ghana Population Council expressed worry about the country's population growth rate and called on government to initiate steps to limit the number of children by couples to three.

Ambassador Edward Boateng said this in an interview with GBC's Deputy Director of Radio Yaw Agyapong who is among 66 Journalists taking part in the Radio Broadcasting Techniques for developing countries course organised by China.

He said Ghana can initiate a similar policy like the One Child Policy.

He added that as representatives of the President in China, his office will follow up on promises made by the Chinese government to Ghana in for the successful implementation of the "One District, One Factory Policy".

The Director of Radio Yantai in ChinaCai Xian has been explaining the impact and the strides the development of Radio has made over the years.

He noted that Radio has contributed significantly in shaping societies and driving the information sharing initiative till date.
