Hu Shan, Ambassador of the People’s Republic of China to The Bahamas, presented Minister for Education, Science and Technology Jerome Fitzgerald with a gift from the Chinese government of nine computers and two printers September 19.


Minister for Grand Bahama Michael Darville and senior officials from the Ministry of Education and Ministry for Grand Bahama also attended the event.

The computers are being donated to three institutions that assist in the education of children with special needs or disadvantaged students–Beacon School, Programme Sure, and Providing Access to Continued Education (PACE).

Minister Fitzgerald told Ambassador Hu that the Bahamian people are grateful to him and the citizens of the People’s Republic of China for the donation and their efforts in helping to provide the best possible education for the children of The Bahamas.

He noted that this was the seventh such presentation by the Chinese government to schools in The Bahamas and that a number of Bahamians have benefited from scholarships offered by China to study in the country.

“These acts of kindness will foster goodwill and strengthen the relationship between your government and the government of The Bahamas,” he told the Ambassador.

The Ambassador also paid a courtesy call on Minister for Grand Bahama Michael Darville at his office in Freeport. The two met for an hour and discussed opportunities in trade, investment and manufacturing.
