Development king or chief is an honorific title, which is received by a person who deserves it and the person is expected to bring development to the area where he/she was crowned.

Becoming a chief is known to be a privilege that is extended mainly to only people of royal blood or those who have grown up within specific jurisdictions but the enstoolment of the man from China is one of the rare exceptions.

China is one of the most infrastructurally developed nations in the entire world and it is hoped that Sun Qiang would exhibit strategies of his home country to develop his Ghanaian community.
