The Chinese Government has agreed to provide 2,500 LED solar lights with poles to the Government of Dominica, according to ambassador Wang Zonglai.
Wong wrote in a Sun Newspaper article that the move will help “mitigate the adverse effects of climate change to Dominica and improve social well-being.”
The move, according to the ambassador, will help save a large quantity of electricity “which means the burden of government budget can also be mitigated.”
“With the use of green energy, Dominica will also attract more attention in the region as the Nature Island,” Wang said.
In the same article, Wang wrote that China Railway 17 Bureau Construction Group Corporation (CRCC), which constructed the E.O Le Blanc Highway, will voluntarily construct a leisure square with fitness equipment in Fond Cole near the highway.
Construction of the square will possibly begin next year.
See what the park will look like below.
