Taiwan: ‘The beautiful island’

Posted: Sunday, June 2, 2019. 9:45 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma-Gonzalez: Taiwan, formerly called “ La Ilha Formosa”, meaning the beautiful island is home to Taipei 101, the world’s tallest sustainable green building.

Taiwan gained the title of being a beautiful island when the Portuguese saw the island back in the 16th century. The word ‘Formosa’ is still an informal name referring to Taiwan and there are many bubble tea shops named ‘Formosa’. Taiwan is also one of the digital capitals in the world and the hub of the ASUS brand of laptops.

The Taichung World Flora exposition is one of the many festivals held in Taiwan and attracts over 8 million visitors. The Expo spans 60.88 hectares and consists of four theme parks; Houli Horse Ranch; Forest Park; Waipu Yongfeng Park and Fongyuan, Huludun Park which represent the four sub-themes productivity, life, ecology and biotechnology.

This event displays to the world, the hard work of Taiwan’s farmers, the thoughtfulness of the architects, the efforts of volunteers, and Taiwan’s hospitality. Through the expo’s exquisite designs, visitors are immersed in, and admire, a visual feast from nature with reminders of simple pleasures and creating moments of happiness in life.

Taiwan uses the New Taiwan dollar, which is equal to about 0.064 cents Belize. There are over 23 million people living in Taiwan. In addition, Taiwan has become the temporary home of many Belizean student grantees of scholarships from the Government of Taiwan.

A digital press group comprised of journalists from Belize, Honduras, South Korea, the Philippines, Malaysia and Saudi Arabia will explore Taiwan’s political and economic development. The group will meet with officials from Taiwan Foundation from Democracy, the Director General of the Department of International services, and officials from the office of Trade Negotiations.

The group will also visit the artificial intelligence robotics hub and Taipei 101 among others.
