KINGSTOWN, St Vincent---President of Taiwan, Ma
Ying-jeou reaffirmed his country s commitment to
St Vincent and the Grenadines as he wrapped up
his one-day official visit on Saturday.
During the visit which included meetings with
state officials, a tree planting ceremony and the
official opening of a bridge funded by his Government,
he said the cooperation projects between both coun-
tries has borne fruit in the areas of infrastructure,
agriculture, healthcare, information and communi-
cation technology, human resources and cultural
"St Vincent and the Grenadines has always been
a strong advocate of the Republic of China on Taiwan
on various international occasions. This fully demon-
strates the friendship, justice and love and genuine
friendship between our two countries. And what we
do today is only a small token of paying back to your
great nation," he said through an interpreter.
He then said in English: "The English saying goes,
A friend in need is a friend indeed. So this is a true
reflection of the long friendship between our two
countries. So, once again, I want to tell you I wish
our friendship will last forever, just like the bridge."
At the ceremony to official open the US$1.1 million
Colonaire Bridge on the northeast coast, Ma spoke
highly of Taiwan's contribution to the development
of St Vincent and the Grenadines.
"This is where our relationship with Taiwan is so
critical. I think of all the countries with
which we have close relations, this is the
one, which teaches us this lesson best of
all...and that is why I want the media from
Taiwan to know this. This is one country,
which does not bad spend one single cent
of any assistance, which we get from Tai-
wan," the prime minister said.
"We spend this money wisely, because
we know you work for it very hard. It is an
important point that we have to make," he
Later in the day, the President returned
to Kingstown, where he met with Prime
Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves for the signing
of a joint communiqué.
He also presented a scholarship certificate
to a representative of the 17 Vincentian stu-
dents who will receive various scholarships
from Taiwan this year.
