SOCIAL SCENE: Chinese talks


Share post:

Chinese ambassador Wang Ke invited diplomats, parliamentarians, people from the business community and others to a reception marking the 65th anniversary of the People’s Republic of China.

The cocktail affair was held at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre in the gaily decorated red room, where Chinese fare in food and culture was the order of the evening.

Calypsonian and balladeer Gabby added a touch of Barbadian flair with his rendition of three folk songs including the evergreen Emmerton, while Barbadian students in the Chinese beginners programme at the University of the West Indies Cave Hill Campus showed off their accomplishments, rendering songs in the language with their teacher Xu Bo.

Members of the Barbados Tai Chi Association also took to the stage to give a demonstration of martial arts.

Governor-General Sir Elliott Belgrave and Lady Belgrave and Acting Prime Minister Richard Sealy joined the Chinese Ambassador and her husband Zhou Haiou, who was in Barbados for a visit, for the evening.
