His visit includes a visit to the Taiwan-funded Agro-Tourism Demonstration Farm, a tour of the Brimstone Hill UNESCO World Heritage Site and the signing of a Joint Communique.

St Kitts and Nevis has been among Taiwan’s strongest ally in the region, and recent years have seen bilateral cooperation on a number of projects, particularly in the field of solar energy.

St Kitts recently hosted a trade expo from Taiwan and is readying a solar farm at Robert Llewellyn Bradshaw International Airport being funded by Taiwan.

The hemispheric, which began Aug. 11, will conclude Aug. 22.
