Third, let's encourage more exchanges in education, culture and in the people-to-people field. We need more cultural performances both ways. Degrees attained at the University of the West Indies, University of Technology and Caribbean Maritime Institute are recognised in China. The two sides are working to exchange language and science teachers at universities and high schools. China is offering more than 360 human resource training positions to Jamaica this year, 40 per cent more than last year. China is very grateful to Jamaica for training 10 Chinese sports coaches and students and for offering 10 scholarships at the Caribbean Maritime Institute.
As I've said before, we must learn to to speak the language and learn more about Chinese culture since we are getting deeper into bed with them. Conversational Spanish and now Mandarin Chinese should be in the school curriculum.
