On June 30th, H.E. Yan Xiusheng, Ambassador of the People’s Republic of China to Barbados attended the Barbados Domestic Table Tennis Championship Opening Ceremony. Mr. Erskine Simmons, General Secretary of Barbados Olympic Association and Mr. Dale Rudder, President of Barbados Table Tennis Association (BTTA) attended the ceremony.

Ambassador Yan expressed at the ceremony the high appreciation of the long-standing table tennis friendship between China and Barbados. In early 1980s, Chinese Government dispatched one table tennis coach to Barbados, who brought advanced technologies and trained a number of excellent young athletes, which makes Barbados rank top in the Caribbean region. This year, the Chinese Embassy in Barbados donated training equipment to support the development of table tennis in Barbados. The Chinese Embassy in Barbados stands ready to work continuously with BTTA not only for expanding influence of table tennis in Barbados, but also deepening the understanding and friendship between the two peoples.

Mr. Dale Rudder sincerely welcomed Ambassador Yan and thanked the generous donation and support from the Chinese Embassy in Barbados and Chinese Government. The donation will effectively improve the BTTA hardware level and training ability, as well as promote the development of table tennis in Barbados. The BTTA is willing to further deepen its exchanges and cooperation in the fields of sports with the Chinese Embassy in Barbados and to strengthen the friendly cooperation between Barbados and China.
