TAIWAN / USA / THE CARIBBEAN – Taiwan’s Representative to the United States ambassador Alexander Tah-Ray Yui and American Institute in Taiwan managing director Ingrid Larson jointly signed the Taiwan-US Arrangement for Technical Cooperation in the Caribbean in Washington, DC, April 10, 2024.

The agreement further implements the Taiwan-US MOU on Development and Humanitarian Assistance Cooperation, which was signed by the two sides in November 2022.

Under the framework of the arrangement, Taiwan’s International Cooperation and Development Fund (TaiwanICDF) and the US Agency for International Development (USAID) will enhance cooperation in three of Taiwan’s diplomatic allies in the Caribbean region.

The two sides will exchange experiences on focal areas such as education, agriculture, climate change, disaster preparedness, citizen security, cyber and digital development, and women’s economic empowerment. They will cooperate on assistance programs that promote sustainable development in the region.
