21 August, 2017 (Taipei, Taiwan) – Students and nationals living and studying in Taiwan had the opportunity on August 21 to interact with the St. Kitts Nevis delegation at a dinner jointly hosted by MOFA and the Embassy of Saint Kitts and Nevis in Taiwan. Medical practitioners who are currently in Taiwan as part of the renal medical project also joined the delegation.
Head of delegation, Foreign Minister Brantley and his counterparts Federal Minister Eugene Hamilton and Nevis Island Administration Minister Alexis Jeffers, took time from their busy schedule to meet with students and nationals living and studying in Taiwan. “Our people are our primary resource and we must seek every available opportunity for their training and development” Minister Brantley said. The delegation expressed particular delight in the health professionals being trained in aspects of renal care under a programme supported by Taiwan to provide training and equipment to St. Kitts and Nevis to treat renal disease and also to promote healthier lifestyles to prevent the high incidences of non communicable diseases within the Federation. Minister Hamilton who has Federal responsibility for Health and Minister Brantley who has responsibility for Health in Nevis both commented on the critical need for this renal project.
The students and nationals of St. Kitts and Nevis expressed their appreciation for the opportunity to meet with the delegation and their warm appreciation for the training opportunities afforded them by the Government and people of Taiwan.
