Protocol signed for Chinese military aid

New Chinese Ambassador to Guyana Zhang Limin on Tuesday paid his first visit to the Office of Chief of Staff, Commodore Gary Best, during which the two took the opportunity to sign a protocol for the delivery of  5 Million RMB (approximately US$80,000) in military equipment to the Guyana Defence Force, a press release from the army said.

The agreement for the military aid was signed in 2011.  Among the items to be provided to the GDF are a field ambulance, aluminum boats and metal detectors.
