Part of Charlotte Street to be designated Chinatown

Postby vaiostation » May 16th, 2019, 9:40 pm

Part of Char­lotte Street, in Port-of-Spain will of­fi­cial­ly be des­ig­nat­ed as Chi­na­town when icon­ic arch­ways are built by the Shang­hai Con­struc­tion Group.

The an­nounce­ment was made last Mon­day by may­or Joel Mar­tinez dur­ing a re­cep­tion to wel­come a vis­it­ing high lev­el del­e­ga­tion from Shang­hai at the Hy­att Re­gency.

Mar­tinez said the arch­es would be lo­cat­ed at Park and Char­lotte streets and In­de­pen­dence Square and Char­lotte Street.

The ini­tia­tive, Mar­tinez said, is one of the on-go­ing projects dis­cussed as part of a planned twin­ning be­tween the city of Port-of-Spain and the city of Shang­hai.

He said, “Our twin­ning will cre­ate an ide­al en­vi­ron­ment which will de­vel­op new co­op­er­a­tion tech­niques, ex­change of ex­pe­ri­ences as well as joint re­flec­tions on spe­cif­ic is­sues that will find so­lu­tions and bring im­prove­ments.”

The co­op­er­a­tion be­tween the two cities is part of the Belt and Road Ini­tia­tive an­nounced by Chi­nese Pres­i­dent Xi Jin­ping in 2013.

It is a cre­ative co­op­er­a­tion mod­el that aims to bet­ter deal with the eco­nom­ic and so­cial dif­fi­cul­ties cur­rent­ly be­ing faced world­wide.

At the event, Chi­nese Am­bas­sador to T&T Song Yu­min said, “With a fur­ther man­date from the Cen­tral Gov­ern­ment, now Shang­hai Mu­nic­i­pal­i­ty will pri­ori­tise its cor­po­ra­tion with Trinidad and To­ba­go.”

He ex­pects the two coun­tries to make great strides as the part­ner­ship con­tin­ues to be built with re­newed vigour.

Deputy Sec­re­tary Gen­er­al of Shang­hai Mu­nic­i­pal Peo­ple’s Gov­ern­ment Huang Rong said with joint co­op­er­a­tion in var­i­ous fields be­tween the Port-of-Spain City Cor­po­ra­tion and Shang­hai, T&T would be a bright pearl in the Caribbean.

Na­tion­al Se­cu­ri­ty Min­is­ter Stu­art Young, who al­so at­tend­ed the event, said the ini­tia­tive is one of the pil­lars that form part of the bridge be­tween this coun­try and Chi­na.

That twinning thing is not new - this and other govts have done it in the past with Chag and Couva etc.

Just another reason for some wannabe diplomats to travel first class, wine and dine top dollar on the public purse. Might carry a "carnival" contingent too, to make some business people feel important.

Is Shanghai a clean place, at least? Lord knows that would be the most appreciated part of twinning.

We've twinned with many cities before. Firtst time I've seen a gesture of this magnitude as reciprocation. So is it unfair to ask where in Shanghai will be George Street, with a Trini moko jumbie or panman or similar?

Under kamla, I believe that the Indian high commission tried to get some area or so designated an indian village, I wonder why it never happened?

Kams and the cabal probably stole the money the Indian High commission allocated for it so it never materialized
