Leader says Serbia is proud to give citizens Chinese vaccine

first_imgBELGRADE, Serbia (AP) — Serbia’s leader says he is proud his country became the first in Europe to give its population the COVID-19 vaccine product made in China. President Aleksandar Vucic expressed his gratitude to Chinese President Xi Jinping on Wednesday for the 1 million doses of the Sinopharm vaccine delivered to Serbia. Vucic said that by receiving the jabs, “the citizens of our country expressed deep trust in the Chinese vaccine and with that also in the Chinese state and Chinese experts.” Last year, Vucic kissed the Chinese flag when China delivered masks and other protective equipment and he criticized the European Union for an alleged lack of solidarity at the start of the coronavirus pandemic.last_img read more

Mackenzie Sports Club AGM and elections set for today

first_imgTHE Mackenzie Sports Club (MSC) will today stage its highly anticipated Annual General Meeting and Elections from 17:00hrs at the MSC Lounge.Incumbents, president Avery Trim and general secretary Marlon Pearson are expected to deliver their reports to the membership while there will be the financial report in the absence of the treasurer John Trim who is overseas..The MSC remains the oldest club serving the community of Linden after it was established in 1956 at the present location on Greenheart Street, Mackenzie.Membership of this club would have dwindled as the fortunes of the bauxite industry did over the years but there is hope that this once live-wire centre for sports in Linden would again become the eye for sports in the mining town.Over the past two months the club’s Committee of Management has been clamouring for the members to pay up their monthly subscription dues to ensure they are eligible for participation on the business of the meeting but the response by most has been slow.However, it is expected that the members will get involved and the holding of the important elections will follow the meeting today..last_img read more
