By BBN Staff: The Taiwan Embassy and the Belize Taiwan Alumni Society co-hosted the Orientation for 2020 Taiwan Ministry of Foreign Affairs & ICDF Scholarships.
The orientation was held on July 25, 2020 at the Belize Biltmore Plaza.
Ambassador Remus Li-Kuo Chen officially congratulated the 48 aspiring young Belizean awardees with best wishes as well as the courage and faith for life while facing challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Invited VIP guest speakers included Colville Young, Governor-General of Belize; Patrick Faber, Minister of Education, and Wilfred Elrington, Minister of Foreign Affairs.
The guests thanked the Government of Taiwan for providing even more scholarship opportunities to young Belizeans, as a testimony to the stronger-than-ever Taiwan-Belize friendship.
They all also shared the view that the 48 scholarship recipients are to be ambassadors of Belize while in Taiwan, and should return to Belize once completing their study to contribute to the national development of Belize with their specialized expertise.
Other programs included a video clip made by Belizean students currently in Taiwan, alumni Ann-Cruz-Eck and Karina Garbutt sharing their Taiwan experience, and 2020 Scholarship recipients Christian Miranda and Joneli Pinelo sharing their aspirations for studying in Taiwan and returning as the positive driving force for Belize.
Congratulations to the 48 recipients of the 2020 Taiwan Scholarships, a record high number since the inception of Taiwan Scholarships being offered to Belizean students.
