By BBN Staff: The Government of Belize has extended its congratulations to President of the Republic of China (Taiwan) Tsai Ing-wen on her inauguration today.
Governor General of Belize, H.E. Sir Colville Young sent a special greeting to President Tsai saying, “That victory was much more than a personal triumph: it was, Excellency, a victory for democracy and a victory of the political system that permits, indeed welcomes, a diversity of viewpoints and a free and competitive economy.”
Prime Minister Dean Barrow said, “Under President Tsai’s leadership, Belize and Taiwan will remain the firmest of friends. We expect not just continuity but expansion of our bilateral relationship. And in the international sphere Taiwan can always count on Belize’s support.”
Both the Governor General and Prime Minister also thanked President Tsai for Taiwan’s support and contributions to Belize over the years, particularly during the recent COVD-19 crisis.
President Tsai made history as the first female presidential candidate in 2012 and became the first female president of Taiwan in 2016. She won her second term in the January 2020 elections, with over 8 million votes, a commanding 57 percent of the votes cast.
