Suriname is the smallest and the least populous country in South America. Having been colonized by the Dutch, it is the only Dutch-speaking country in South America. Because of its different ethnic groups, Suriname has a variety of delicacies they can call their own. The Chinese constitute almost 10% of the total population. As the Chinese are now flooding Suriname, there is a growing anti-Chinese public sentiment in the country.
In 2015, the discovery of sizable oil reserves in Suriname made it popular with both China and the US.
