Dominica receives more disaster assistance from China

china aid

Dominica has received a further US$200,000 in emergency assistance from the People’s Republic of China following the passage of Tropical Storm Erika.

A release from the China’s embassy in Dominica, the assistance is based on needs in Dominica “and changes in the disaster situation.”

“The aid will help local recovery and reconstruction.” the release said.

China has already provided assistance to the tune of US$300,000 following the storm.

The new donation brings to total US$500,000 in assistance from China since Erika.

    \”Who is that from?\” From you highness – The one and only pretentious China; Who will soon rule your BUTT. Because you will never be able to pay the crooks back. How you think the ARABS got so much land in Dominica? they were giving your grandparents clothes and shoes on CREDIT. After, when the debt was too damn high, the clothes and shoes became more costly than property and land – or land and property. So they got you all mixed up. Nothing is free coming from China. They are only investing.

    That’s a little more like it. Personally i felt that the initial us$300,ooo the Chinese government gave us was a joke considering the fact that Taiwan whom we had broken diplomatic ties with since 2004 gave us $1oo,ooo us. the gesture is appreciated but the Chinese government can do better than that they owe it to us to do better than that as a matter of fact

    Thanks for all aid from our socialist friends .however we need to be serious about our own development. Two thousand to try run the abattoir and coffee to imported from Nicaragua for the coffee plant. Remember the abattoir and was the coffee factory was promised since 2009.Domnicans do javascript:lessSmilies()the maths . Had we began planting coffee six years ago there will be no need to import from Nicaragua. And starting a try run n the abattoir with 2ooo birds is a big shame. Why not import birds ,sheep goats,cows pigs from Venezuela as well..
    Its a big shame to see Dominicas settleling for such garbage.Dominican farmers are hurting while our leaders pretend to be asleep.

    All that good but cant China just give us a “debt forgiveness” that would prove a more “friendlier china to its sister Dominiica, in light of the fact that we owe them our country in debt.

      Don’t be stupid. Mao Zedong’s disastrous policies were responsible for the deaths of millions and millions of people. There’s good reason his collectivist policies were abandoned by later Chinese policymakers.

    With that kind of aid, how can we not support the Chinese program – even if we don’t really know what it is yet!
    Western countries are dropping the ball big time on this.
