Taiwan’s ambassador assures SINU of further support
DEAR EDITOR, the Taiwanese Ambassador to the Solomon Islands, His Excellency Roger Luo, and his delegation visited the Solomon Islands National University (SINU) last week.
Ambassador Luo met with SINU’s Acting Vice Chancellor, Professor Basil Marasinghe and the couple had what was described as ‘fruitful discussions’.
It has since emerged in media reports of the meeting that Ambassador Luo told the Vice Chancellor that the Taiwanese Government is ready to help SINU in areas covering Agriculture, Forestry, and Communications Technology.
The Ambassador also mentioned that his government will be funding a stadium for soccer in time for the 2023 Pacific Games.
Taiwan has supported SINU for several years in providing post-graduate education to Lecturers in the School of Nursing, as well as supporting academic programmes such as the Bachelor of Nursing and Mandarin Language Programmes.
