Taiwanese President, Ma Ying-Jeou arrived in Belize at 10:50 this morning on an official visit.
President Ma is visiting Belize as part of a farewell tour to three countries. The first country he visited was Guatemala, and now Belize.
In delivering a speech upon his arrival, President Ma said: “Belize is one of the staunchest allies of the Republic of China (Taiwan). Over the years, our two countries have collaborated closely in perfect harmony in a wide array of fields, and stride forward hand in hand in international community. Belize has rendered strong support to the Republic of China (Taiwan) for its continuing campaigns for participation in international organizations. I therefore bring with me the heartfelt appreciation from the government and people of the Republic of China (Taiwan) to Belize.”
When he departs on Thursday, President Ma’s last stop will be the US. The Reporter will have more details on the visit of President Ma in our printed edition on Thursday.
