Experience Dominica – The Nature Island: Dominica Vacations | Exotic Vacations | Honeymoon Destination

Dominica weekly is a personal weblog about the nature island of Dominica.

Folks, I couldn’t help laughing when I first read this story, but on the contrary this is not a laughing stock to the Government and people of Grenada. Guess I will let you make your own assumptions….here goes

ST GEORGE ‘S, Grenada: While it was a significant occasion it was also an embarrassing one for the Government of Grenada as the Chinese handed over the keys to the new National Stadium.

At the beginning of the proceedings the national anthem of the Republic of China on Taiwan was rendered by the Royal Grenada Police Force Band instead of that of the People’s Republic of China.

In an effort to redeem the situation, the correct anthem was played at the end of the proceedings.

While not much was said as to how the mix up took place, Prime Minister Dr Keith Mitchell said his administration will not go silent on it.

Apologizing to the Chinese delegation, Mitchell said the incident affected the happiness of the moment and a full investigation will be carried out into the matter.

“On behalf of the government and people of this happy country, a country that recognize the warmth of its friends and respects its friends, I deeply apologize to the Chinese ambassador and the entire Chinese people and the delegation.�?

The prime minister also made a special call to the opposition to support every measure to be taken by the government to demonstrate respect for its friends.
