By BBN Staff: Today, the Embassy of the Republic of China (Taiwan) in Belize warned that a fake press release has been maliciously circulated in the embassy’s name.
The Embassy noted that the fake release stated that “ in 2020 more than 2,000 Chinese will be moving to the country with their families,” but the information is false and it is believed that the source of the release intended to mislead the public into a false understanding of certain aspects of the Belize-Taiwan relations.
“… the Embassy also wishes to remind our Belizean friends to exercise necessary caution and sound judgment to this obvious manipulation of fake news,” the Embassy said. “The Embassy represents solely the interest of the government and 23 million people of Taiwan, and hence without any responsibility or authority related to the
handling of any immigration issues of Chinese Nationals to Belize. The Embassy simply has no such plans of moving any Chinese Nationals to Belize and will never do so.”
In its clarification, the Embassy also noted that it is committed to increasing trade ties between Taiwan and Belize, as evidenced by the signing of the Letter of Intent (LOI) on August 15, 2019, to kick off the negotiation of a Partial Scope Agreement (PSA) to further enhance the investment and trade relations between the two countries.
