By BBN Staff: The Embassy of the Republic of China (Taiwan) in collaboration with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and The Ministry of Economic Development, Petroleum, Investment, Trade and Commerce, held the opening ceremony for its Taiwan Expo 2019 yesterday.
The ceremony marked the beginning of the expo, which will run from today through to tomorrow at the Caribbean Motors building at Mile 3.5 on the Philip Goldson Highway. The expo features 10 companies from Taiwan offering an assortment of items including electronics, jewelry, and cookware, that interested Belizean businesses can begin importing.
Following the opening, Ambassador H.E. Remus Li-Kou Chen, explained that the expo is the result of over a year’s worth of planning and coordination between the embassy and the ministries involved. Minister of Foreign Affairs, Wilfred Elrington, said that the expo forms a part of a greater push to increase trade relations with Taiwan.
Elrington noted that last week, a technical team came from Taiwan to discuss enhancing agriculture in Belize. A team was in Belize this week meeting with stakeholders in the tourism sector, and a team of 15 Belizeans left the country on Friday headed to Taiwan for the first round of trade negotiations for the establishment of an economic partnership agreement.
