By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On Thursday, July 21, 2022, Prime Minister John Briceño, Minister of Finance, Economic Development and Investment, received the first disbursement of the 2022 bilateral cooperation grant from Taiwan.
Taiwan’s Ambassador to Belize, David Kuan-Chou Chien presented the first disbursement of the grant in the amount of US$1,150,000.
The Government of Belize says that the financial support will support several initiatives aimed at attaining our sustainable development goals and will see the upliftment of the people of Belize.
“This initial disbursement will be used to fund the expansion of the National Healthy Start Feeding Program for this school year. The feeding program is an initiative administered by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Science and Technology, with the support of the Ministry of Health & Wellness, the Ministry of Agriculture, and the Food and Agriculture Organization, to reduce and prevent hunger, obesity, and other forms of malnutrition in vulnerable school children and help to keep such children in school,” the Government noted.
Taiwan and Belize have enjoyed strong bilateral relations since 1989.
