Taiwan has granted $5 million to the government of Belize for infrastructure projects.

The funding, which was officially presented by Taiwanese Ambassador David CK Wu to Prime Minister Dean Barrow Thursday, will target projects including the Belize City Southside Poverty Alleviation Project, the extension of the Southern Highway to Jalacte and the new crossing of the Macal River in San Ignacio/Santa Elena.

“Ambassador, please convey to your Government the heartfelt thanks and appreciation of my Government and those of the people of Belize,” Barrow told Wu. “This cooperation program will go a long way in assisting Belize in
meeting its development goals.”

The grant, which was issued under the Bilateral Cooperation Programme between the two countries, covers the period from 2013 to 2016.
