Screen_Shot_2017-07-27_at_7.58.38_PMMinister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of China (Taiwan), H.E. Dr. David Lee arrived in Belize yesterday on a three day visit scheduled from the 26th to the 28th of July on the invitation of Belize’s Foreign Minister, Hon. Wilfred Elrington. However, Minister Lee’s arrival in Belize went completely under the radar as no press release or agenda was issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs regarding his visitation… At least not until late yesterday sometime after 7:00 p.m.


Through the release, we learnt that yesterday a Memorandum of Understanding on Bilateral Cooperation was signed between Lee and the Government of Belize, through which Taiwan will provide $60m to Belize which is expected to contribute to the country’s development. One third of that donation will be provided in grants and the remainder in loans which will be disbursed over the next four years.


During the Ministerial visit, Elrington conferred the Order of Distinction on Minister Lee, in acknowledgement of the friendly relations that exist between both parties and of the valuable contributions that Taiwan has made to Belize over the nearly three decades. During his visit, Minister Lee will make a working visit to Taiwan’s technical mission at Central Farm which has introduced new practices in agro processing and support efforts to boost up the value chain.


Minister Lee and his delegation are also scheduled to take an aerial tour of the Belize’s renowned Great Blue Hole located near the center of the Lighthouse Reef Atoll. Minister Lee is expected to conclude his visit tomorrow after visiting the Samuel Haynes Center of Excellence. He is accompanied by his wife Chi Lin and his delegation comprising of three members namely, Director-General of Latin America and Caribbean Division, Chou Lin, Secretary General of the ICDF, Hsiang Tien-Yie and, Deputy Secretary, Coordination Council for North American Affairs and TECRO in US, Chien, Kuan-Chou.
