KINGSTON, Jamaica, May 24, CMC – The Government of the People’s Republic of China will be hosting a summit that will focus on the Caribbean’s relationship with China over the years.
Through its embassy here, China has partnered with the Department of Government at the University of the West Indies Mona campus to host the summit under the theme ‘China in the Caribbean: History, Politics, Diplomacy and Enterprise’.
The summit will be held on May 30..
Head of the Department of Government Dr Lloyd Waller says the Caribbean is at a critical point in its history in shaping international alliances and carving out for itself a niche on the international markets.
“I am truly excited, primarily because there has been too many speculations and uncertainties about China’s intention with their expansion in the region, and this summit will definitely provide an avenue for deeper fact finding and a more refined understanding of the issues.”
He said that for far too long the conversation has been one-sided, and so it is time for the conversation to be extended to facilitate the voicing of China’s own view of their intention in their Caribbean expansion.
He concluded that the time could have been no more perfect for the Chinese government to initiate this partnership.
