China’s commitment applauded by Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit
Prime minister of Dominica and Minister of Finance, Honorable Roosevelt Skerrit has said that Dominica’s decision to establish diplomatic relations with China has brought nothing less to the country, but tremendous economic development.
The Dominican leader said that over the years, citizens have and continue to benefit tremendously from funds made available to Dominica by China, in addition to the infrastructural and social development initiated by the Chinese government.
The Prime Minister believes that the fact that China continues to give support to Dominica even during the global financial crisis, is in itself a testimony that their commitment is based on mutual trust and friendship.
“China and Dominica have had a very fruitful and beneficial relationship over the years and I have no doubt that the promises that China has made to Dominica will be maintained. We see that despite the global financial crisis, which from our indication will continue to affect the nation for the next few years, China has remained true to its commitment to help Dominica with its economic and social advancement”, said Skerrit.
