ST. GEORGE’S, GRENADA, July 21, 2015 – GIS: The Peoples Republic China has been commended by government for the significant role it has been playing in national development.

Senator Simon Stiell, on Tuesday, said the contribution China has been making in the area of education is not only worthy of recognition but of high praise.

Grenada is seeing a year-on-year growth on the number scholarships that the Peoples Republic of China is offering to students and the number of short-term specialist training courses for members of the public and private sector.

“This is something that is very, very important for us and is a significant contribution to what is taking place right now in education,” Senator Stiell said.

He also mentioned China’s critical role in the development of Grenada’s tourism product, particularly their investment and involvement in the development and beautification of Grand Etang area.

“We have the gazebos under construction right now in Grand Etang. The facilities we had previously were in a bad state, so their contributions in the reconstruction of those gazebos and the enhancement of our national attractions are of great value.”

Senator Stiell also highlighted China’s involvement in other areas such as agriculture, sports development and housing.

“We have two stadia, low income houses….there is a co-op agreement between Grenada and the Peoples Republic of China for the development the agricultural sector. So we cannot over state the importance of the contribution that the Peoples Republic of China is making in all areas of Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique,” he said.
