Mawuko Afadzinu, President of the GTTA, told the GNA Sports, he had had preliminary discussions with the president of the federation and steps will be taken to establish a firm relationship with the Asian country.

According to Afadzinu, Singapore, which dominated table tennis in the competition, has made much progress in the sport in terms of techniques and player development adding that, going into partnership with them will help his outfit.

Commenting on the performance of the team, Afadzinu said though the team did not win medals, they have shown enough prospects.
