On February 27, Taiwan Ambassador to Saint Lucia H.E Peter Chia-yen Chen handed over $3.2 million which Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre says will be used to to strengthen the island’s social safety nets.
The government will also use the money to develop local sporting infrastructure and improve Saint Lucia’s human capital.

Does the govt (any one of them) have to account to “Joe Public” HOW these “grant funds” are used? I wonder? I always read/hear about countries giving ex amount of millions of dollars to this country – but no account is ever given to the public on how and where it is spent … it is high time the proverbial “wool” is not cast over our eyes. “Joe Public” is supposed to be smarter than those of yesteryear.
One has to ponder. With all these monies given to us which we can’t pay back directly as $ what then are the gifters/lenders receiving in return… time will tell
Friendly government has been giving the state money for decades , but yet still over 80 percent of the population are dirt poor caught in chains of poverty …
Give Thanks Taiwan.
