The center based in Port Elizabeth was opened by Provincial Commissioner, Lieutenant General Liziwe Ntshinga. It also conincided with the thrid term opening of Chinese Langue Training Center.
The police service, SAPS, in an official statement quoted the commissioner as applauding the efforts of mutual cooperation between the two countries whiles stressing the need to deepen community level cooperation between the police and the Chinese.
With the strengthened and deepened relationship between South Africa and China, the SAPShas benefitted by finding its role in order to further the existing relationship within the police and the Chinese community.
On the other hand, this relationship has also found its expression in the educational programmes involving our police members. I congratulate the Chinese community for the noble initiative established in the Province and Clusters in Port Elizabeth, she is quoted to have said.
An official of the Chinese embassy in Pretoria, Yu Yuan, on his part pledged that citizens will continue to be law abiding in all their affairs and that China will continually play its role in helping build safer communities.
