Santo Domingo.- Dominican Republic’s Congress on Monday recognized Taiwan president Ma Ying-jeou for his country’s contributions, and celebrated his 65th birthday with his third visit to the Caribbean nation.
Ma stressed Taiwan’s donations to the Dominican people as well as the close ties between both countries.
Among the donations the Asian leader cited figure motorcycles and ambulances for the National Emergency System 911, which have been used in emergencies, accident prevention and public safety.
