BELIZE CITY, Belize. Mon. Mar. 22, 2021– Today, Monday, March 22, His Excellency Sir Colville Young, Governor General, received letters of credence from the newly appointed Ambassador of the Republic of China (Taiwan) to Belize.

Taiwan’s new ambassador to Belize, H.E. David Kuan-Chou Chien, served as the Director General of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Miami. He headed the diplomatic, consular and economic development headquarters of the Republic of China (Taiwan) in Florida, Puerto Rico, the US Virgin Islands, Bermuda, the Bahamas, the Turks and the Caicos Islands. In addition, he oversaw consular services in the Dominican Republic.

In his letter of credence, Chien conveyed greetings on behalf of the president of Taiwan, Her Excellency Tsai Ing-wen, and pledged to rally for the interests of both countries and to strengthen the existing relationship between Belize and Taiwan.

The Governor General welcomed the new ambassador and his delegates.

Taiwan and Belize have had strong diplomatic ties since 1989. Belize has remained diplomatic allies with Taiwan, even as many countries have cut ties in favor of the People’s Republic of China. Belize has consistently supported Taiwan on numerous occasions, including in international platforms like the United Nations. Most recently, the two countries co-signed a 2021-2025 memorandum of understanding, which complements the longstanding development programme shared by the states.
