PALIKIR, Pohnpei—Through the Great Friendship between the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) and the People’s Republic of China (China), on December 10th, 2020, the Honorable Livingston A. Taulung, Secretary of the Department of Health & Social Affairs and Chairman of the FSM COVID-19 Task Force, received His Excellency Huang Zheng, Ambassador of China, in a handover ceremony for an additional fifty thousand dollars ($50,000) of assistance to aid the Nation’s COVID-19 preparation, mitigation, and adaptation efforts.
“On behalf of the People and Government of the FSM, I extend our continued appreciation to the People and Government of China for their support to our Nation during the time of this COVID- 19 Pandemic,” Secretary Taulung said. “China has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars, personal protection equipment, and the thirty containerized isolation rooms, all of which have dramatically increased our medical capacity. Like all Chinese assistance, this humanitarian help comes without any sort of caveat—it’s just genuine help from a genuine partner, and we appreciate it so very much.”
