President Tsai Ing-wen is encouraging businesses to invest in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, one of Taiwan's diplomatic allies in the Caribbean. Tsai was speaking on Thursday while meeting the nation's agriculture minister, Saboto Caesar, and economic planning minister, Camillo Gonsalves.
Tsai offered congratulations to St Vincent on the opening of Argyle International Airport in February. Tsai called the airport the most significant infrastructure project in the country's history. She said Taiwan was honored to have played a role in its construction. The president said she hopes the airport will help promote tourism and attract more overseas investment for St. Vincent. Tsai said she is doing her part to encourage Taiwanese businesspeople to invest there.
Tsai said, I hope that the new airport will bring in more international investment to boost the country's economic growth. We also hope that as St. Vincent's economic development takes off, more of our companies will invest over there. That will make our diplomacy practical and build up the cooperation between our two countries.
Tsai said she hopes St. Vincent will continue to support Taiwan's participation in international organizations.
