How do Chinese and Caribbean youngsters see each other?

CGTN published this video item, entitled “How do Chinese and Caribbean youngsters see each other?” – below is their description.

For more:

They are geographically distant but China and the Caribbean have a lot in common in their culture and appreciation of each other’s resources. The Hub with Wang Guan brings together four young people from the Bahamas, Barbados, Guyana and Jamaica, and a quartet from China to see what they know of one another. While the Chinese appreciate the four island nations’ natural beauty and prowess in sports and music, the Caribbean students highlight China’s technological advancement and the benefits of the Chinese partnership. At the same time, they don’t shy away from tackling the “growing Chinese influence” narrative. Is China imposing its will on the islands? Both groups see it as an equal partnership: While China is helping the Caribbean grow, the archipelago is providing China talent and exposure in their part of the world.
