The Republic of China and the island of Saint Lucia have maintained close cooperation in public health, agriculture, education, infrastructure, culture and other areas since the two countries resumed diplomatic relations in 2007.

On Education, a number of Saint Lucian students have received scholarships to study in Taiwan with over 30 having completed their studies and returned home. On Agriculture, much progress is made under the Agricultural Cooperation Projects. Taiwan’s continuous funding of the Constituency Development Program (CDP), has provided thousands of jobs across all 17 constituencies in Saint Lucia.

Saint Lucia also supports Taiwan’s participation in International Organizations such as the World Health Assembly, International Civil Aviation Organisation and United Nations Framework Conference on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

In 2015, the Government of Saint Lucia opened an embassy in Taiwan—the Caribbean country’s first in Asia, in an effort to strengthen bilateral ties. The embassy will be tasked with promoting foreign investment in Saint Lucia while its presence in Taiwan will help advance bilateral ties. On December 3rd, 2015, Saint Lucia’s first Ambassador to the Republic of China (Taiwan), His Excellency Ambassador Hubert Emmanuel, presented his Credentials.
