Share post:

CHINA WILL BE seeking to forge even closer links with Barbados in the years ahead, says Ambassador Xu Hung.
The Chinese have already started to explore how they can assist Barbados’ efforts to develop alternative energy options and are looking at ways of promoting tourism from their populous nation.
Ambassador Xu made the revelations during a courtesy call on the Publisher and Chief Executive Officer of the Nation Publishing Company Limited, Vivian-Anne Gittens, on Thursday.
The ambassador said that “positive talks” with Government on renewable energy had already taken place. He revealed too that exports from Barbados to China were rising.
Ambassador Xu, who took up his appointment here on April 1, said he liked Barbados and our “wonderful weather”.
“I think I am very happy,” he said with a smile. (SP)
