A $10 Million cheque from Taiwan

One of the country’s most generous partners is the government of Taiwan. This morning in Belmopan, Ambassador David Wu presented a cheque in the sum of five million U.S. dollars to the Prime Minister Dean Barrow.  The cheque is a grant from the Republic of China for the Bilateral Cooperation Program between the two countries. The government says it will use the funds to cover expenditures for key infrastructure projects, including the Belize City Southside Poverty Alleviation Project Phase Two, the extension of the Southern Highway to Jalacte in the Toledo District, and for the new crossing of the Macal River in San Ignacio/Santa Elena. Ambassador Wu explains.

    Such a travesty that the TW govern’t chooses to give money to these crooks when they have no social care for old ppl. I watch old women gather bottles late into the night while this pig gets to have money that can be best used in TW. Politics sucks!

    Does this include a diplomatic comfort girl for Bootyman?

  3. sickntired says:

    Why this taiwanese man throwing away his people money? We all know this check will go straight into this corrupt bunch pockets. Plus the taiwanese are not getting any support from belize – you hear how the ambassador refer to the past. I bet as soon as them genius at Foreign Affairs learn how to contact China the taiwanese man will get 5 million reasons to cry.

  4. Rod says:

Give them the tools to do the job not money because half will go in barrows pocket and the other balk will go in his ministers pocket and the people will get nothing again how can a country like Taiwan be so stupid damm .

    You mean the Belize City South Side Buy A Vote Project. People on the South Side need to empower themselves through education and best social practices. Yes, have less children, take advantage of your education and yes, please, stop shooting each other. If u can’t do that, please try confine your killing to yourselves and your politicians. And yes, we are bought and paid for by Taiwan.

    Ham and turkey money

  10. Belizean Pride says:

    this money came right on time for the town council and city council election. Knew sometime was coming very soon so lets see who get and no get and hear after the lame excuse for the money unfounded after. let’s just pray that it really happens to be done as said but as usual tht never happens.

  11. Good Use Hopefully and Transparency says:

    In the past their was a housing project whereby each constituency was giving low income houses to needed residents of the area.

    In some cases three or four plysem houses were placed on one lot. Most of those people were complete strangers and even though houses were granted, there have been much disputes as to how the yard should be run.

    I think that a portion this money should be used to separate those houses or to help to build fences that separate these individuals.
