Observer on Saturday - - News -

he Min­is­ter of Ed­u­ca­tion and train­ing Lady Howard -Mabuza, on be­half of the King­dom of Eswa­tini, ex­pressed her grat­i­tude to the Repub­lic of China (Tai­wan) for their mas­sive con­tri­bu­tion to ter­tiary train­ing in the coun­try.

“The gov­ern­ment of Eswa­tini, through the min­istry of ed­u­ca­tion and train­ing, ap­pre­ci­ates this kind ges­ture by the gov­ern­ment of the Repub­lic of China (Tai­wan)

Twhich will go a long way to as­sist those de­serv­ing stu­dents who oth­er­wise would not have been able to ac­cess ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion. It is noted and ap­pre­ci­ated that the award is to pro­vide schol­ar­ships to 100 stu­dents of ECOT with out­stand­ing aca­demic per­for­mance who come from low in­come fam­i­lies and who will at­tend in 2019/2020. This award trans­lates to $660 000, which is equiv­a­lent to $220 000 per year for three years (2019-2021 aca­demic year),” she said. The min­is­ter went on to say that this is not the only sup­port the King­dom of Eswa­tini has re­ceived from the Repub­lic of China (Tai­wan) un­der the tech­ni­cal and vo­ca­tional and train­ing en­hance­ment project.

“May I thank the gov­ern­ment of China (Tai­wan) for the gen­er­ous sup­port that we have and con­tinue to en­joy from the co­op­er­a­tion that ex­ists be­tween the two coun­tries,” she said.
