Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen is wrapping up a visit to the world famous Brimstone Hill Fortress, in her third day of an official visit to St. Kitts and Nevis.
So far on her visit, the President has been involved in some high profile ceremonies, including the signing of an agreement on cooperation in technical, vocational and educational training at St. Kitts’ Park Hyatt and the ground breaking for a sustainable and environmentally friendly project in Nevis.
The Nevis Island Administration (NIA) had plans for the sustainable development project since 2014 but it failed to gather any speed because of lack of financing.
The Taiwanese government is providing financial and technical assistance for the Nevis project.
The groundbreaking ceremony for that project featured President Tsai, Premier of Nevis Hon. Mark Brantley and the Deputy Governor General Her Excellency Hyleeta Liburd.
As part of plans to bolster already strong relations between Taiwan and St. Kitts and Nevis, President Tsai’s delegation includes a contingent from the Taiwanese tourism sector.
The Taiwanese government has indicated that it will continue to maintain and improve on tight relations with St. Kitts and Nevis.
Later this evening, July 15, the President will be the guest of honour at a cocktail hosted by Governor General His Excellency Sir Tapley Seaton.
