Taiwan ambassador announces projects at media luncheon



ROC-Media-Luncheon-1Basseterre, St. Kitts, 7th December, 2017 ( - Two new projects will be implemented in St. Kitts & Nevis in 2018, through the Embassy of the Republic of China (Taiwan), said Ambassador George Gow Wei Chiou, when he hosted the news media at a 6th December luncheon.


The first will be an ICT based land registration digitalisation project that will assist the people of the federation.


Ambassador Chiou explained, “The Embassy of Taiwan will help the Government of St. Kitts & Nevis to digitalise all the land registration records. As you know land registration is still being done on paper, which can be damaged by water, age and fire. We hope after three years of implementation, the land registration would be digitalised and residents can benefit.”


The second project is the Climate Change Adaption Project. He explained that farmers have suffered a lot from reducing rainfall over the years. Ambassador Chiou said Taiwan can assist farmers by introducing plants more adaptive to dryer conditions.


“We can help local farmers with choices. If rainfall is lower than average, farmers can choose a different kind of agricultural product other than the current one they have. On the other hand, when the temperature is increased, insects also, comparatively, increase and farmers suffer a lot. So Taiwan can assist with agricultural plants that are more resistant to various insects,” Ambassador Chiou said.


Over the years, the St. Kitts & Nevis media covered numerous projects funded by the Government and people of the Republic of China (Taiwan), which have been of significant assistance in the development of the country and people of the federation.
