China Vows Closer Ties With The Bahamas
BEIJING, Oct. 27 (Xinhua) — Chinese Vice Premier Hui Liangyu met with Bahamas Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham in Beijing Wednesday, vowing joint efforts with the island country to boost cooperation.
Hui hailed the rapid progress of bilateral ties, citing frequent high-level exchanges, enhanced substantial cooperation and cultural exchanges, and close coordination in global and multilateral areas.
“Enhanced China-Bahamas relations meet the fundamental interests of both countries and peoples,” he said.
Ingraham, on his second visit to China, said he had made the correct choice in setting up diplomatic ties with China 13 years ago and sticking to the one-China policy.
He spoke highly of China’s great achievements, and appreciated China’s support for his country on issues of major concern such as the Bahamas’ entry into the World Trade Organization.
Ingraham hoped to cement cooperation with China, in particular in tourism.government
