The physical address of the embassy is as follows: 100 Atlantic Boulevard, Bakau, Telephone 00220 4498989, 4498990. Fax is 00220 4498993.

Meanwhile, the release added, the embassy's postal address and e-mail remain the same P.O. Box 916, Banjul, rocemb@gmail.com.

According to diplomatic observers, the new edifice is well-structured and more spacious, compared to the previous one.

"It has always been Ambassador Richard Shih's wish to have a more conductive working environment for the embassy staff as this is a clear manifestation of that," says a Taiwanese Embassy insider who wants to remain unnamed.

"The latest development has indeed brought a big comfort to us," he concluded.
