Basseterre, St. Kitts, February 23, 2022 (SKNIS): The Taiwan Technical Mission pledged to continue supporting the projects and activities of the Ministry of Agriculture in St. Kitts and Nevis, particularly as it relates to climate change adaptability.
Kyle Huang, Project Specialist at the Technical Mission reiterated the commitment of the Republic of China (Taiwan) to the local government at the Agriculture Review Planning Meeting held on Tuesday, February 22, 2022, at the St. Kitts Marriott Resort.

We established a new project that will assist the ministry in achieving the goal of enhancing innovation and sustainable systems,” Mr. Huang stated.
He added that the Taiwan Technical Mission can always be depended on to provide general technical support in agriculture in St. Kitts and Nevis. The ROC also assists the Federation in agro-processing as well as crop development.
