The Chinese government has made a great achievement in lifting an annual average of over 10 million people out of poverty, she said.

Grenada is one of the few countries that allow Chinese tourists to visit without having to apply for a visa. According to the Grenadian ambassador, more and more Chinese have visited Grenada, and learning Mandarin has become a trend among the Grenadian people.

Many Grenadian people have grown fond of Mandarin, which helps them to understand China and form friendly relations with the Chinese people, she said.

China-contracted projects in Grenada, such as stadiums and buildings, also demonstrate the sincerity and loyalty of the Chinese people. In December 2015, China’s naval hospital ship Peace Ark provided medical services for 9,057 people in Grenada over six days, a move that was highly praised by the local people, the ambassador pointed out.

In 2018, China and Grenada signed a Memorandum of Understanding on promoting Belt and Road cooperation, which not only facilitates the overseas sales of Grenada’s agricultural products, but also makes it easier for Chinese people to visit Grenada. The Belt and Road Initiative is providing great possibilities for Grenada to further participate in economic globalization, said Abbie S. David.
