Taiwan’s National Central Library this week received a donation of fifteen books from Saint Lucia Ambassador Dr. Robert Lewis.

Taiwan’s Central News Agency (CNA) said the books reflecting Saint Lucia’s culture showcased ‘cultural diplomacy.’

Saint Lucian Nobel laureates Arthur Lewis and Derek Walcott authored three of the publications, and Calixte George Sr. wrote another.

Ambassador Lewis said he hoped the books would help Taiwanese people better understand Saint Lucian culture, social life, and the aspirations and achievements of the Saint Lucian people.

“The books should also help to foster and boost ongoing efforts to strengthen the bonds of friendship and cooperation that exist between Saint Lucia and the Republic of China, Taiwan,” the former Saint Lucia Education Minister stated.

Taiwan and Saint Lucia established diplomatic relations in 1984, but in 1997 Castries switched recognition from Taipei to Beijing.

In April 2007, Taiwan and Saint Lucia reestablished diplomatic relations and China severed its ties with the latter.

  1. It’s rather unfortunate that of the fifteen books only three writers were mentioned..
