What sort of impression do Dominicans who have visited China since that country established diplomatic relations with Dominica in 2004 have of Beijing – that question is being explored through an essay competition organized by the Embassy of China here and the Ministry of Education.
The two are holding a joint awards ceremony on Thursday (10th May), for the winners of that competition in which those who participated wrote on the theme “China in My Eyes”.
An embassy official told DNO that the aim of that activity was to “strengthen cultural and personal ties between our two peoples”.
Those participating in the competition were expected to write about what they saw and learnt about China during their visit.
Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit is expected to deliver a congratulatory address at Thursday’s function.
Embassy officials say President Nicholas Liverpool and Education Minister Peter St Jean will also attend the function.
According to the embassy, similar competitions will be held in the near future in which the participation of the broader public will be sought
