Mayor of Castries, His Worship Peterson D. Francis last week took the opportunity to bid farewell to the Ambassador of the Republic of China (Taiwan) His Excellency Douglas Shen.
At the brief send-off, Mayor Francis said goodbye to Ambassador Shen expressing his gratitude to the departing diplomat for his valuable support to this country during his assignment here.
The Taiwanese Embassy has made its mark through partnerships and cooperation with the Castries Constituency Council, particularly during the annual Festival of Lights.
The Embassy of the Republic of China (Taiwan) was also at the forefront of the twinning between the Cities of Taipei and Castries.
The twinning paves the way for upcoming plans to develop Castries into a smart city.
