On the occasion of the 30th Anniversary of Diplomatic Relations between the Government of Belize and the Government of the Republic of China (Taiwan), on Thursday, September 5, 2019, the National Assembly of Belize received a contribution of BZ$40,000.00 from the Government of the Republic of China (Taiwan).
The official handing over of the contribution was done by His Excellency Remus Li-Kuo Chen, Ambassador of the Republic of China (Taiwan), to the Honorable Laura Tucker-Longsworth, Speaker of the House of Representatives, during a handing over ceremony held at the foot of the National Assembly Building in Belmopan.
Also present at the ceremony were the Honorable Darrell Bradley, President of the Senate; Members of the House of Representatives and the Senate; and other invited guests.
The Honorable Laura Tucker indicated in her speech that the contribution will be used to acquire a new system that would improve the facilities used by the media houses who broadcast the proceedings of the Assembly. The new audio/video system will consist of three cameras installed to capture multiple angles, and each media house will then be able to connect to a live audio/video feed.
