TAIPEI, TAIWAN – Taiwan is one country Swaziland can count on for support towards the attainment of First World status by 2022.

Reciprocally, Swaziland reaffirmed her commitment to push for Taiwan’s international recognition and meaningful participation in United Nations’ organisations and other international bodies such as the World Trade Organisation (WTO), World Health Assembly (WHA) and World Health Organisation (WHO) International Civil Aviation (ICAO) and United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC).

The Taiwanese pledge was affirmed by the Foreign Affairs Minister of the Republic of China on Taiwan David Chen yesterday during a dinner hosted in honour of His Majesty the King, who is on a four-day State visit to the country’s bilateral partners since independence in 1968.

Chen said Taiwan was committed to strengthening bilateral relations with the kingdom which have existed over four decades. He expressed appreciation for Swaziland’s support for their efforts towards incorporation in world bodies.
His Majesty extended gratitude for the financial and technical support from Taiwan, which has also seen several investors setting up companies in Swaziland and creating valuable jobs.

He assured the Foreign Affairs minister of the country’s continued support in all its endeavours, saying the world has a lot to benefit from the expertise of this developed country. He called upon the minister to continue urging locals to invest in Swaziland, where opportunities have emerged in various sectors.

The dinner was also attended by the Chief Officer in the King’s Office Dr Vincent Mhlanga and four ministers, namely Natural Resources Minister Jabulile Mashwama, Commerce Minister Gideon Dlamini, Foreign Affairs Minister Chief Mgwagwa Gamedze and Economic Planning and Development Minister Prince Hlangusemphi.

Swaziland is a good country but can't take care of the people who need help.
