The Ambassador of the Republic of China on Taiwan, His Excellency Richards Shih, has once again said that the relationship between his country and The Gambia is friendly and cordial.

The Taiwanese diplomat made these remarks recently in an interview with the GRTS in Banjul after presenting a cheque for $300,000 to Department of State for Health and Social Welfare.

Ambassador Shih pledged to do his utmost in ensuring the excellent relationship between Taipei and Banjul is taken to a higher height.

He however used the opportunity to appeal to Gambians to give him the necessary support and co-operation to enable him achieve his mission. "My promise is that I will work with my colleagues to do our best but to our Gambian friends please do not hesitate to give us advice," he stated.
