China’s ambassador to Dominica presents education grants to 22 DSC students

Education grant recipients with dignitaries

Twenty-two students of the Dominica State College were the recipients of $2,700 grants from the Embassy of the Republic of China in Dominica today. The students are pursuing education in various fields.

Education Minister, Hon. Octavia Alfred implored the recipients to work hard to maintain their efforts till graduation, stating that the government is invested in procuring these opportunities and that their job as students is to meet these initiatives halfway.

She went on to commend the Chinese government for their assistance “not just in building schools, but in building people.”

Acknowledging youth as the most vital force in society, Ambassador  H.E Lin Xinjiang pledged to rally for the continuation of this sponsorship annually, as well as to expand the number of students reached. He expressed gratitude on behalf of the Chinese government for the opportunity to provide support in several arenas, identifying Dominica as China’s “best friend” in the region.

For his part, Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit said he was gratified at the rapid response of the People’s Republic of China to the Dominican government’s plea for assistance to these students, which he said was confirmation of the nearly twenty-year friendship forged between the two countries.

    So, watch this now!
    There are more Chines students studying in the United States of America, than the total population of Dominica.
    The question is why?
    My answer is because an American education far exceeds that of the China man; nevertheless, Roosevelt sends people’s children to China to wast time to be indoctrinated into China’s philosophy, returning with nothing in their heads that can help the nation to excel and succeed.
    They cannot use a China degree to work in any North American, and most European countries!
    Note: In 2020/21, there were more than 317,000 Chinese students enrolled in U.S. institutions. In 2020, there were around 380,000 Chinese students studying in the U.S., comprising approximately 34% of all international students enrolled that year. In the academic year 2019/20, there were 372,532 international students from China studying in the United States. Last year, there were about 290,000 Chinese students studying in the U.S.
    Soon Chines will be our language.

    Hello Beautiful Dominica, China the Communist Country is taking you over bit by bit; but don’t cry my beautiful Island. Because WTP will rescue you. We the True Patriots will give our blood 🩸 for you. What your children are witnessing has nothing to do with your development. But rather your destruction and a takeover by the invaders who were given free reigns by Roosevelt Skeritt to rape you in every visible cavity in your body. We are ready and always will be ready to defend you at all cost. You are worth fighting for. WAKE UP OPPOSITION OF THIS PARASITIC REGIME AND RALLY THE TROOPS.
