ï¿½The Republic of China (Taiwan) has opened a new opportunity for Solomon Islands scholars to live and work in Taiwan.
ï¿½His Excellency Roger Luo on Tuesday said the programme commences this year.
ï¿½He said, ï¿½We have gone even further to amended our law and allow Solomon Islands students who graduate from our scholarship programs to stay and work in Taiwan starting from this year.ï¿½
