“We also extend our heartfelt appreciation to all the people of Belize for your unwavering staunch support and friendship to my country, Taiwan,” said Ambassador Chien.

The Ambassador said he knows the people in Orange Walk and Belize have suffered tremendously because of the pandemic. He added that we have to work together to contain the spread of the pandemic.

“Taiwan is Belize’s trustworthy ally and a reliable partner in national development. Both of us share the common values of democracy, freedom, and human rights,” said Ambassador Chien.
