The Republic of China (Taiwan) is working with the Ministry of Heath, Wellness and the Environment to enhance the emergency response system here in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
Taiwan’s Ambassador to SVG Peter Sha-Li LAN while on the Issue At Hand program said delegation will be coming to SVG facilitate training that will enable hospital staff to take the necessary measures needed at the site of accidents and other off site locations.
According to the Taiwan’s Ambassador, this training will result in the saving of many lives.
“This is very important because, think about it, whenever you have accidents out there the first person to arrive is either police, coast guard, or you know, others; not staff from the hospital. So if we were able to train those personnel they would be able to perform some of the CPR correctly—other measures on the scene, we can save a lot of lives. That is the fundamental spirit of the training program,” Taiwan’s Ambassador said.
The Governments of Taiwan and SVG deepened their ties in August of this year when two signed between the two.
The treaties signed were the Treaty on Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters, and a Treaty between both nations on the Transfer of Sentenced Persons.
