Minister Curtis King who has just assumed the Chairship of the OECS Education Minister’s meeting, were at the ceremony on behalf of the Government of SVG.

Deputy Prime Minister Hon. Montgomery Daniel expressed sincere gratitude to the friendship from Taiwan and pointed out that the donation from SHEICO company shows that Taiwanese people stand with the people of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines when facing natural disasters.

Minister explained that the 150 Tablets will equip those students whose online studies are in great need. Deputy Prime Minister Montgomery also expressed the most sincere appreciation to the Government of the Republic of China (Taiwan)’s assistance on this matter.

Minister King express his gratitude to the Taiwan SHEICO company, also appreciated the continuous support from the Taiwan government on the education field to SVG, including the Bursary scholarship granting to primary and secondary school students which allow them to purchase some school materials.

Taiwan also provides scholarships for Vincentian young generation to pursuit higher education so they can contribute to the development of the country, therefore Minister King called for qualified Vincentians to apply for the Taiwan scholarship before the end of March this year.

Taiwan and the SVG have established diplomatic relations for over 40 years, during which more than 200 Vincentian Taiwan scholarship recipients have travelled and studied in Taiwan, and more than 11,000 local students from disadvantaged families were awarded Bursary scholarships.

Furthermore, Taiwan Government also carried out many projects to improve local schools’ infrastructure and maintenance and so on.
