Taipei, April 15 (CNA) President Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) on Wednesday conferred a medal on
Singapore’s outgoing representative to Taiwan, Calvin Eu (于文豪), in recognition of his contributions to the friendly relations between Taiwan and the Southeast Asian country.
At a ceremony at the Presidential Office, Ma presented the Order of Brilliant Star with Grand Cordon to Eu, who is set to return home later this month after almost four years’ tenure in Taiwan.
In response, Eu said he was honored to receive the medal and expressed hope that bilateral cooperation will be expanded.
