The People’s Republic of China has donated approximately US$1.2 million dollars’ worth of disaster management equipment and supplies to the government of Antigua and Barbuda.

The supplies included items like folding cots, rescue protective clothing, boots, gloves, helmets, basket stretchers, safety harnesses, ropes, and other tools and equipment.

Prime Minister the Hon. Gaston Browne and the country’s Non-Resident Ambassador to China His Excellency Brian Stuart-Young had high praises for the Chinese government for its willingness to always help Antigua and Barbuda.
