Share post:

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, Aug 17, CMC – Barbados has signed an economic and technical agreement with the People’s Republic of China that Bridgetown says signals the growing relationship between the two countries.
“In May 2012, we celebrated 35 years of diplomatic relations and this economic and technical agreement demonstrates the strengthening of our friendship and bilateral relations,” said Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade Minister Maxine McClean as she signed the accord with the Chinese Ambassador to Barbados, Xu Hong, on Friday.
She said Barbados was identifying a number of developmental initiatives that could benefit from the new agreement, while the Chinese diplomat said that the agreement would assist Barbados in its development and economic growth.
Over the years, China has provided assistance for numerous development projects, including the construction of the Garfield Sobers Gymnasium, the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre, and the Elsie Payne Complex.
