China is a great example to Dominica – PM Skerrit

Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit has described the People’s Republic of China (PRC) as a “great” example to countries like Dominica in the developing world on how to maximize available resources.

Skerrit made the point during a reception at the Fort Young Hotel on the occasion of the observance of the 65th anniversary of Independence of the PRC which will be celebrated on October 1.

“So China is in fact a great example to all of us in the developing world,” he said and explained that China has “been an example of how a developing state can go about improving the lives of its people, what we can do with the resources that we have and of course, with the determination of our people.”

He said PRC has endured tremendous challenges over an extended period of time, ranging from all forms of invasions and because of the determination of the leadership and the people of China, they were able to overcome those “atrocities.” Today, he said, China is the second largest economy in the world and is also a permanent member of the UN Security Council.

“I believe that this is testimony to the fortitude of the Chinese people. But very critically too, is the belief of the Chinese people in their own abilities to overcome whatever challenges they are faced with.”

The country’s leader also stated that he wished to re-emphasize “Our adherence and recognition of the one China Policy,” which he said has been that way for the past 10 years.

“Rest assured your excellency that our countries will continue to enjoy excellent relations both at the bilateral level and also at the multi-lateral levels,” Skerrit noted.

The One China Policy refers to the policy of view that there is only one state called China despite the existence of two states that claim to be “China.”

According to Princeton University website, the One-China policy has been the held by both the People’s Republic of China (PRC) and the Republic of China (ROC) (also known as Taiwan) They both agree that there is only one sovereign state encompassing both mainland China and Taiwan, but disagree about which of the two is legitimate.

It also means that countries seeking diplomatic relations with PRC must break official relations with the ROC and vice versa and all countries recognizing the ROC recognize it as the sole legitimate representative of all of China and not just of Taiwan (https://www.princeton.edu/).

The PRC will observe their 65th anniversary on October 1st.

During that period the PRC’s economic status has risen from US$ 100 billion 65 years ago to US$ 9.3 Trillion in 2013, the world’s second largest economy and according the Chinese Ambassador to Dominica, they are aiming for the US$ 10 Trillion mark.

    Skeritt You have neglected Our human resource and embraced the Chinese Human resource which is unlimited by givingvthem our Jobs.Who did you build that Palace for by the way?

    If Skeritt had learnt anything about maximizing limited resources from the Chinese he would have employed Dominicans to build the State Palace,refurbish the West Coast Road ,build the State College and borrow the money from China.There would have been Dominicans building their own homes instead of China donating them.

    See a relationship with (prc), consider a relationship with a partner almost twice your age, with a history (acts) dated back thousands of years. How is this marriage, health wise, challenges, or is that which was recommended? Do not be unequally yoked with the unbeliever, (Christian vs dragon …) instructions on oath and other relationship roles.

We need to be careful that because we a receiving ration from a country that we don’t compromise who we are as a people and jeopardize and tanish our beautiful country’s image.

    Is he aware of the old Chinese proverb which is, don’t give a man a fish dinner every day teach him to fish and he will be able to feed his family every day. Also what he needs to learn from China is that they empower the people by creating employment and upgrading their standard of living, not get them to line up every day at a red clinic to pick up hand outs.

    Concerning the “One state’ policy of China which only has two states you should compare it with the USA that have 50 states, yet they all behave as one and no one claims superiority over the other. The fact that China will give anything just to support their one state policy if proof of rule by dictatorship which is what Skerrit is slowly bringing to Dominica. But you know what? He has protected the future of his son by ensuring he has US citizenship while he himself bought his family house in New Jersey. I wonder why he did not plan for a future in China. The man saying one thing but his actions say something different and Ian knows him very well

  15. Itassi Too

    he said and explained that China has “been an example of how a developing state can go about improving the lives of its people,.” Skerrit. China is an example of how to improve the lives of it’s people? So why so many Chinese are taking the first opportunity they get to run out of China? Just imagine some of them running to Dominica. You need to go to Manhattan NY, to a street called “China town” and ask those Chinese

    But Skerrit drinking Zaeed man? ……….. The man sounding so off man! Didn’t you know China was a great example before your son was born in the US? Why did you not give birth to him in China knowing how great an example they are? But you have to say that because China and other communist countries are the only countries that will give you so much money without asking you to give account of how money was spent. I mean you think the USA will just give you money without you telling them how and where it will be spent and without you presenting them credible receipts to sure money is spent as planned? Hell no! So can they be an example to you? No. So I can understand your logic

    so how has Labour party lead government impacted the lives of Dominicans in the way that the communist party in China has done for the Chinese people? we have a negative population growth plus an economy that imports virtually everything. what do we as a nation produce for export? china is the largest manufacturer in the world. so again i would really like to understand how has labour party taken example from China in the development of Dominicans? and if they’re our friends why have they not replace our fallen cash crop “Banana”, with some crop that we could provide or even a chinese cruise ship dock at our ports, then again i can’t remember the last time i saw a cruise ship here but tourism is to be the mean stay of the economy.

    • September 25, 2014

      Did I hear the words “global warming”?

      China is a major offender with no intentions of changing. Why? Because they are hell bent on being the most productive industrial nation in the world and nothing will be allowed to subtract from their bottom line. So they fill their atmosphere with pollutants until the sky is black with soot with no care about the medical problems they are causing for thousands, to say nothing about their contribution to global warming, and the loss of ice at the two poles, the destruction of wildlife, and the incredible change in weather condition causing multiplied millions of dollars damage world wide.

      They violate human rights forcing communism upon the people, dictating to married couples the number of daughters they can have, restricting freedom of religion, and using cruel and unusual punishment to make an example of those who dare to act outside the box.

      By paying low wages they prosper by the sale of their manufactured inferior products abroad. Here in Canada a “Made in China” label brings chuckles. Yet our country continues to import their goods to satisfy the greed of our major wholesalers and retailers. Again and again warnings have gone out across Canada about dangerous toys, and baby items, and unsafe food products from China.

      China watchers in the free world are concerned about the interest China is taking in the Caribbean. Make no mistake about this. The Government of China would do nothing for any other nation large or small if they did not think there was something in it for themselves. We know this by the way they govern their own country. God have mercy on any small nation that borrows from China and defaults. Anything the Government of China “gives” to a small nation is to buy that nation’s appreciation and trust with some definite goals in view.

      Dominica is a beautiful island – a natural paradise – whose tourist potential has not been fully realized by its people. China may be more than willing to develop it. On the other hand they may want to create another Communist base in the Caribbean. In this case they have some long term goals with more than Dominica in mind.

      The very people we would expect to be to be sounding an alarm – those with the most to lose – are clamming up either for political correctness or religious expediency. We are hearing nothing from those who are suppose to be God’s “watchmen on the wall” who should be blowing the trumpet.

      China is hardly a nation to be envied or imitated, and NOT a nation to be trusted!

Therefore, I reiterate, do not bring His Most Holy Name in your political scheme, wishes, discord and hatred. He is not part and parcel of this.
      If you are a Christian or call yourself one, you should know better and to leave him out of this politics.

      You are a real zulu. Needless to state, Dominicans are the ones benefiting from China’s aid. Dominica is their country. You should be grateful. So just what did you state? It made no sense.
      Some healthy people are poor and are in need of financial help. As you, they have to live and eat. God knows that too. Would you rather they starve?
      Many of the likes of you love to harp on their receiving financial assistance and begrudge them. Where is the love in your heart? Yet you have no feasible suggestion which could assist them for the future.
      Instead of criticizing, why do you not help to create jobs? Do something concrete for your country and help your fellow people. More work and less talk would be beneficial to them, to you and to Dominica.
      Along with the critics, you do not make inspiring conversationalists. You are too negative and depressing.

Where is your pride? The sort of values that come through self reliance and ingenuity.
        Creating an atmosphere for job creation is the responsibility of the government. What you don’t know is for two years now I am trying to get a manufacturing product that could help agri industry. Guess what cannot get statistics. I am not blind. I love my country.

      The PM mentioned friendship. Furthermore, all countries strive to maintain a relationship, a friendship with others who are willing for also the sake of peace. Take a look at those who make-up the UN both in the past and in the present.
      Know that wherever people can get help, in general, you can be assured that they will not be enemies of those nations. This does not mean they approve of their internal policies. The best thing for them to do is to stay out of the policies of a country unless it affects them and their country. Broaden your mind. Maybe you should take a tripe to those countries.

        However, Lennox Linton also said:”…under a UWP government the people of Dominica will see greater benefits from the relations between Dominica and China”. I like that brother, I like it a lot!

    Another lie or confusion. According to Skeritt, China must be thanked for all the projects to which is has helped Dominica. Very soon the new hospital project will be realized. Remember when Mr. Lennox Linton talked about the building of an international airport, no sooner that statement was made, Skeritt rushed to China in order to have talks about an airport. In fact, it is alleged, he had signed a contract for over US $300,000 for the building of the airport. During the reception at Fort Young, we heard of all kinds of projects we should thank China, not one mention of the airport. Maybe, the plagiarizer forgot to mention the $300,000 airport. Another case of amnesia or simply a big fat lie.

      Dominica is a more beautiful place because of China’s overall aid. You are jealous of the DLP government. What if it were UWP government. What would you say and what would you not say?

        Which law? According to Skerrit no law , not even constitution will stop him. So people are only following their leader and use the law only when it suits them Capice?

    Mr. PM….China is fighting corruption as a top priority and that is a great example for Dominica.

    So I hope you learn from China with its fight against corruption.

    I realise that Mr Skerrit could hardly be expected not to praise Dominica’s primary donor country on its anniversary, that’s fair enough. But if we’re really looking for good examples that fit our context, we shouldn’t look at a behemoth like China, we should look at small states that have succeeded, such as Hong Kong, Singapore, Bermuda, Liechtenstein, Mauritius, and the Caymans.

      tipical labourite. The man you reffering to is dead he is not hiding he died in 2013. So you see, that is exactly what labour supporters do, they do not listen of find out any information for themselves all they do is listen to what one person say and what ever that person say is correct. My dear that is how people find themselves in trouble and can’t get out, that is exactly what happening to us in Dominica. People listen, read, observe, watch and think PLEASE before you vote any political party.
      I am independent, I am Dominica(n)
