Prime Minister the Hon. Gaston Browne has commended the People’s Republic of China for making available 2 million US dollars to assist the government in repairing 250 roofs that were damaged by hurricane Irma.
Speaking in Barbuda during a ceremony to commence the project which involves the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), Prime Minister Browne said that China has been a close ally of Antigua and Barbuda and has assisted in almost every sector of the country’s development.  “There is no area that China would not have contributed to our development during the last 35 years since we established diplomatic relations.  This relationship is the most important relationship for Antigua and Barbuda.  We thank Ambassador Wang, his government and people for this assistance,” Prime Minister Browne stated.
Prime Minister Browne also noted that the assistance is very important, because it came during a time of crisis and China was very quick to respond.  He also thanked UNDP for their assistance, outlining that the organization comes with certain skills that have been beneficial to the rebuilding process in Barbuda.
