#Bahamas, August 29, 2017 – Nassau – Fourteen Bahamians are headed to China after winning scholarships to study in the world’s most populous nation on the continent of Asia. Ambassador of the People’s Republic of China to The Bahamas, His Excellency Huang Qinguo said it was a great pleasure to be able to assist Bahamians in furthering their education.
The Ambassador sees it as a cultural exchange opportunity too and encouraged the scholarship recipients to deepen their understanding of Chinese culture as a help to the bilateral relations between The Bahamas and China. The scholarships are for a cross-section of disciplines.
Director General at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Sharon Brennen-Haylock thanked the Chinese Ambassador on behalf of the Bahamian people and said that the scholarships represented a ‘profound’ opportunity for Bahamians. Some 100 Bahamians have been awarded scholarships to study in China.
