Diplomatic relations between China and Jamaica were established on 21 November 1972.[1] The Chinese government established an embassy in Kingston in 1973.[1] There was no formal representation from Jamaica to China until 1992, when the Jamaican ambassador to Tokyo, Japan was accredited as a non-resident ambassador to Beijing.[1] Jamaica later established a formal embassy in Beijing, and the current ambassador is Courtenay Rattray.[2] The current Chinese ambassador to Jamaica is Chen Jinghua.[3][4] In 2007, China announced it would provide technical training for more than 2,000 Jamaicans in 2008.[5]
