Chinese nationals in Barbados, Barbadians and foreign diplomats resident here were among the diverse group of guests toasting the 68th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China at the Chinese Embassy’s Golf Club Road headquarters last week.

Charge d’Affaires Zou Xi spoke about the strides made by his country in opening up to the world, especially in the last 40 years when he said China adopted its “Reform and Opening Up Policy”, which resulted not only in social and economic development but paved the way for it to reach out to countries like Barbados, with which it has developed excellent bilateral relation.

“I can confidently say that China has been a partner and friend to Barbados on our developing journey,” Acting Prime Minister Richard Sealy said in his response.
