must go on with its humanitarian efforts overseas so that its name will stand out on the world stage, according to former ambassadors to Haiti and eSwatini in recent interviews with CNA.

Peter Hwang (黃再求), a former Republic of China (Taiwan) ambassador to Haiti, said he believes that the wide variety of aid offered by Taiwan is a reflection of its experience in setting up successful aid programs.

Hwang said that although the country’s post-quake relief fund to Haiti in the wake of the 2010 devastating earthquake was far behind that of many other donor nations, projects carried out by Taiwan’s mission to the Caribbean nation, including the reconstruction of a high court building, were completed on schedule.
