Orange Walk Town Establishes First Sister-City Partnership with Taiwan’s Taoyuan

Orange Walk Town has officially established sister-city relations with the Taoyuan City Council in Taiwan. Orange Walk was represented by its Central Area Representative, Prime Minister John Briceno who led a delegation to the island nation on Friday. This is the first sister-city relationship that Orange Walk Town has established, and is also the first such relationship that the Taoyuan City Council has developed within Central America.  The agreement was signed on Saturday and was facilitated by Belize’s Ambassador to Taiwan, Dr. Candice Pitts.  Prime Minister Briceno has invited Mayor Chang San-Cheng and his delegation to visit Belize to observe the commonalities and discuss future projects. Ladrick Sheppard Orange Walk Town Mayor says the two municipalities hope to collaborate in the areas of tourism, agriculture, and cultural exchanges.

 In Mayor Chang’s remarks, he noted, quote, “In a world plagued with division and conflicts, the signing of this MOU signals that people of the world can prioritize and strive for harmony.”  End of quote.
