Chu made the announcement on Thursday, January 6, saying, ”This is my honour as a public servant.”

Chu’s positive approach at her posting here in St. Vincent and the Grenadines may have earned her the award. Since her arrival to this country she has deepened the longstanding relationship between St. Vincent and the Grenadines and Taiwan.

Chu said she was nominated for the award because the relationship between both countries is so deep that St. Vincent and the Grenadines is now Taiwan’s strongest ally.

“That’s why they nominated me because I must have done some good work,” Chu emphasized.

At the moment, Chu said, Taiwan has 26 allies and she was the only ambassador who was nominated for the award.

The ambassador said in the past while Taiwanese knew of the Caribbean especially because of Grenada’s invasion, “nowadays a lot of people know St. Vincent and the Grenadines”.

Chu said she is hoping to promote tourism in this country.
