Belize and Taiwan Signs M.O.U. and Unveil Commemorative Stamps

Today, Belize and Taiwan held a short ceremony to unveil three commemorative stamps and sign an M.O.U. to improve the postal services in Belize. The three stamps are designed to celebrate Belize and Taiwan’s thirty years of diplomatic ties. To build on that friendship, Taiwan signed an agreement with Belize to help modernize its postal services. Taiwanese Minister of Transport and Communication Doctor Chia-Lung Lin shared the gifts on behalf of his government to Belize. Here’s more from that event.

“Both governments have jointly proposed to sign not only the M.O.U. of the postal services to promote the reciprocal cooperation and the exchange of information and experiences but to also release a set of commemorative stamps to further enhance our cultural ties and promoting the strong bond between our two peoples.”

“I must also thank Belize for its previous support for our nation’s joint proposal for membership into the United Nations. Something that also holds great significance for Chung-Hua post is the universal postal union is also a specialized agency under the United Nations. For Chung-Hua post our nation’s membership into the United Nations equates to rare entrance into the universal post union and appropriately expresses the identity of our nation’s postal service.”

“The postal service will be able to take full advantage of the new technology and I believe that it is one of the reasons we are relying so heavily on Taiwan to improve the system for the postal service. So, I believe the postal service will be here even when I am gone once we put the necessary technology to embrace the postal service.”
