Mr. Luo Songtao, Charge D’affaires of the Chinese Embassy gave a welcome speech, briefing the students on China’s basics and the deep friendship and mutually beneficial cooperation between China and Dominica over the 15 years of diplomatic relations. He encouraged them to learn Chinese culture and serve as the bridge of China-Dominican friendship in the future.
The students watched the video showcasing Chinese culture, learnt how to make dumplings under the guidance of the Embassy staff and witnessed the whole process of the cooking of the Chinese dish Fired Eggs with Tomatoes by the Embassy Chef.
