Basseterre, July 14 (CNA) President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) toured the island of Nevis Sunday, on the second day of her visit to St. Kitts and Nevis, saying she was impressed by the scenic beach landscapes that obviously were very attractive to tourists.
Nevis' reputation as a beautiful tourist destination is fully justified, said Tsai, the first sitting president of the Republic of China (Taiwan) to visit the island.
Accompanied by St. Kitts and Nevis Premier and Foreign Affairs Minister Mark Brantley and Deputy Governor-General Hyleeta Liburd of the Nevis Island Administration, Tsai presided over a groundbreaking ceremony for an ocean park at Pinneys Beach on Nevis.
The sustainable and environmentally friendly project is being carried out with technical and financial assistance from Taiwan, Tsai said. [FULL STORY]
