On June 7th, H.E. Yan Xiusheng, the Ambassador of the People’s Republic of China to Barbados attended the handing-over ceremony for the equipment donated to the Barbados National Cultural Foundation (NCF) by the Chinese Embassy in Barbados. Mr. Cranston Browne, Chief Executive Officer of the NCF attended the ceremony.

Ambassador Yan expressed at the ceremony the high appreciation of what the NCF has done for the improvement of the cultural exchanges and cooperation between China and Barbados. Ambassador Yan indicated that the cooperation between China and Barbados is promising since the Chinese government lists cultural industry as one of the priorities in China’s national development strategies which coincides with the strategy of developing cultural and creative industries adopted by the newly installed Barbadian government. The Chinese Embassy in Barbados stands ready to work continuously with the NCF not only for deepening the understanding and friendship between the two peoples, but also promoting the friendly cooperative China-Barbados relations to a higher level.

Mr. Cranston Browne sincerely thanked the generous donation from the Chinese Embassy in Barbados and expressed that this donation will adequately support NCF’s capacity building in terms of organising cultural and festival events as well as promoting the development of the cultural and creative industry of Barbados. The NCF is willing to further deepen its exchanges and cooperation in the cultural area with the Chinese Embassy in Barbados and jointly improve the understanding and friendship between the two peoples as an effort to strengthen the friendly cooperation between Barbados and China.

The Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation, the Nation, the Advocate and other local media made reports on the ceremony and did interviews with Ambassador Yan Xiusheng.
