Belize and Guatemala partner with Taiwan on SICA-led development initiatives

Belize and Guatemala partner with Taiwan on SICA-led development initiatives

Posted: Monday, April 8, 2024. 11:31 am CST.

By Horace Palacio: The Central American Integration System (SICA) has launched seven new cooperation projects with funding from Taiwan. The two-year projects will focus on various sectors across Guatemala and Belize, both diplomatic allies of Taiwan.

The projects address areas such as public health, climate change mitigation, marine environmental protection, small and medium-sized enterprise development, sustainable tourism, energy transition with an emphasis on electric vehicles, digital transformation, and institutional strengthening.

Both the Guatemalan and Belizean governments expressed their gratitude for Taiwan’s unwavering support of SICA in driving economic, social, and environmental progress within the region. Collaboration on these projects will directly contribute to regional and national development, improving the lives of their citizens.

Taiwan’s Ambassador to Guatemala, Miguel Tsao, emphasized Taiwan’s commitment to international cooperation. He asserted that Taiwan will continue to work closely with SICA and its member countries to foster shared prosperity and development.

Taiwan and SICA have a long-standing partnership dating back to 1992. Since becoming an official observer to the organization in 2002, Taiwan has played a significant role in promoting over 120 cooperation projects with SICA.

In addition to its work with SICA, Taiwan is a member of the Central American Bank for Economic Integration. However, in August 2023, Taiwan withdrew from the Central American Parliament following the body’s adoption of a proposal from Nicaragua calling on Taiwan’s removal in favor of inviting China to replace it.
