On October 18th, H.E. Tian Qi, Chinese Ambassador to Jamaica and Honorable Kimina Johnson-Smith, Minister of Foreign Affaris and Foreign Trade,Jamaica signed an Agreement on Economic and Technical Cooperation. Honorable Christopher Tufton, Minister of Health, Economic and Commercial Counsellor Fan Jianghong of the Embassy and representatives from Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, Ministry of Health, and Planning Institute of Jamaica attended the signing ceremony.

 

According to the Agreement, the Chinese Government is to provide grant funding for the China-Aid Children's Hospital Project (in the compound of the Cornwall Regional Hospital) and other mutually agreed projects. The hospital will be the only one that provides health-care services specifically to children of up to 18 years old in Jamaica as well as children in the neighboring countries. 

 

Minister Tufon believed that beyond increasing employment, the hospital would even more importantly benefit parents and families in the western side of Jamaica, who will have closer and better access to specialist pediatric care.

 

Minister Johnson-Smith thanked Chinese Government for its generous and continued strong support for Jamaica. She hoped that bilateral relationships between the two countries would continue to grow and attain increased levels of cooperation.
