President Tommy Remengesau Jr. invited Taiwan Ambassador Wallace Chow and Minister of Education Sinton Soalablai to meet with the four recipients of the 2017 and 2018 Kainan Scholarship at the President’s Office in the National Capitol on August 13, 2018.

Taiwan is one of the most popular countries Palau students choose to take further education, President Remengesau, thanking the Kainan University for offering scholarships to Palau students and adding that business and trade are both important engines to boost a country’s economy.

“Palau is one of the most important allies of Taiwan. Both countries have close cooperation in various fields, especially education. We know that education is the foundation of a country’s development and that is why Taiwan dedicates so much effort to provide scholarships and capacity building opportunities for Palau,” Ambassador Wallace said.

Mr. Ching-po Lin, owner of the Palau Royal Resort (PRR) and the founder of Kainan University, said that “PRR has developed close bond with the local communities of Palau over the years since its establishment in 2005. Therefore, we would like to provide scholarships to Palau students as a token of gratitude.”
