Communication between the parliaments of Dominica and the People’s Republic of China is expected to improve through a donation of computer equipment and stationery items by a visiting Chinese delegation.
A symbolic presentation of a laptop computer was made to Speaker of the house Alix Boyd Knights during an official visit to Dominica’s Parliament on Tuesday by the Chinese team led by Chen Changzhi, Vice Chairman of the Standing Committee of China’s National People’s Congress.
“The National People’s Congress of China values its relationship with the House of Assembly of Dominica and we stand ready to work with Dominica to strengthen the links and communication between us,” Chen said pointing out that Parliament to Parliament exchange is an important part of overall relations between Dominica and China.
He said the exchange will promote understanding of both peoples and the growth of friendly relations. He is hopeful that the computer equipment will serve to further strengthen communication links between both countries.
“As a token of friendship of the National People’s Congress towards the House of Assembly in Dominica I will help you with a supply of office stationery to improve the working conditions of your house of assembly,” Chen added.
Boyd Knights accepted the gifts and said they will be put to good use.
The 25-member Chinese delegation is on a three-nation “good will” tour which includes Dominica, Grenada and the United States.
