The Commonwealth of Dominica and the People’s Republic of China celebrated 15 years of Diplomatic Relations.

In recognition of this accomplishment, a reception was held at the Goodwill Parish Hall on Mar. 19, 2019.

During this event, Prime Minister Honorable Dr Roosevelt Skerrit, pledged his solidarity to continue working with the government of China. He also expressed his gratitude to China for the significant impact to the development of Dominica.

The Prime Minister says he will continue to support the “One China Policy”.

“As Prime Minister of the Country and more importantly as the leader of the Dominica Labor Party and this government, we are in absolute, complete adherence to the One China Policy. We maintain this both as a matter of principle but also very fundamentally in international law.” The Prime Minister declared.

Prime Minister Skerrit said that the Government does not remain friends with countries based on the assistance they can get from them. However, he says the Government of Dominica maintains these relationships because they understand their role as a part of a global community.
