The Taiwan Technical Mission is providing Saint Lucian farmers with climate change adaptation expertise such as intercropping of vegetables and fruits, or the cultivation of mangoes as fences to weather severe storms. Recovery packages and technical services are also being provided to help banana farmers regain their feet in the aftermath of Tropical Storm Kirk.

Taiwan is and will remain a partner in sustainable development for Saint Lucia’s banana industry.
