Over the past 17 years since the establishment of diplomatic relations, China and Tajikistan have made great progress in their relations. The two sides support each other on issues involving each other’s core interests and major concerns, have good cooperation in infrastructure construction, agriculture, medical care, education and other fields, and the friendship between the two peoples is deepening day by day. China appreciates that many parties have made the development of relations with China a diplomatic priority, and is willing to continue to provide assistance within its capacity for Dominica’s economic and social development. I believe that with the joint efforts of both sides, the friendly and cooperative relations between China and Tajikistan will surely develop better.

China will continue to strongly support multi-party anti epidemic efforts, provide help and support to developing countries including Dominica, strive to make vaccines a public product that people of all countries can use and afford, and make China’s contribution to the realization of vaccine accessibility and affordability. Both sides should firmly support who to play its due role and jointly promote the construction of a community of human health.

The Chinese government adheres to the people-centered principle and is committed to solving the problem of unbalanced development, providing valuable help for the economic and social development of Dominica and other developing countries.
