New ROC Ambassador to SI arrives in the country

By Alfred Maesulia

The Republic of China (Taiwan) Embassy in Solomon Islands has a new ambassador to replace the outgoing ambassador, H.E. Antonio Chen.

Ambassador designate, H.E. George Chen arrived in the country today to take up his duty while Antonio Chen left the country on the same day.

Antonio Chen arrived in the country on July 27, 2003. On Tuesday this week Solomon Islands Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare hosted a farewell dinner in honour of Antonio Chen.

“I would like to commend you sir, for serving your country well in Solomon Islands,” Hon. Sogavare expressed his personal note to Antonio Chen during the farewell function.

Mr. Sogavare thanked the outgoing ambassador “for believing in the government’s rural development strategy without question.”

The prime minister was referring to a direct cash contribution to rural development through the RCDF, Micro Project fund and the poverty alleviation assistance.
