TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Prime Minister of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines Ralph Gonsalves will inaugurate the country’s embassy in Taiwan during a week-long visit to the island nation.
Gonsalves will spend a week in the country, from Tuesday (Aug. 6) through next Monday, commented the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA). Taiwan currently has 17 official allies.
The Vincentian government is the only one of Taiwan’s allies not to have established an embassy in Taipei, after the two countries forged ties in 1981. The establishment of an embassy symbolizes firm relations and close collaboration between the two nations, said MOFA
