“This co-operation between our countries has transcended projects , our people to people interactions is at an all time high and we thanked ambassador Zhao and the people republic of china for also holding this people relationship as a highest form of cooperation”, said Minister Bowen.
He further point out that “Mention must be made of the number of Grenadians that have been afforded the opportunity to pursue the graduate and post graduate studies in China through the Chinese Government Programme as well as the hundred of Grenadians who have participated in short term training”.
Ambassador Zhao says the reception he has received demonstrates the special relationship shared between both countries.
He is pleased with the growth of bilateral relations between both countries since diplomatic relations were established.
“We are confident that by working together we can suddenly build what has been achieved” said Ambassador Zhao.
