In what has been described by the Embassy of St Vincent and the Grenadines in the R.O.C. (Taiwan) as a “partnership of benevolence”, ASUS Foundation, a Taiwan-based, multinational computer hardware and consumer electronics company, delivered 100 laptop computers to the embassy on June 8, 2022.

According to the embassy, the terms of the partnership are where the embassy, using funds raised by the Tunghai Alumni in 2021 for learning recovery in St Vincent and the Grenadines following the devastation caused by the April, 2021 explosive eruptions of La Soufriere, purchased from ASUS Foundation 50 laptops at a specially discounted company price, and ASUS Foundation donated 50 laptops to match the embassy’s purchase, a release states.

Speaking on behalf of the embassy, ambassador, Andrea Bowman lauded the ease with which ASUS Foundation entered into the “partnership arrangement” which redounds to the benefit of teachers and students in St Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG).

These laptop computers for teachers are geared towards complementing the one 150 tablet computers which were donated last year by the SHEICO Group in Yilan County for students in SVG who were most negatively impacted by the disruptions caused by the eruptions.

Ambassador Bowman further stated that, “our embassy is pleased with the manner in which our linkages with Taiwanese businesses are continuing to develop as our embassy approaches the third anniversary of its opening in August, 2019”.
