“You are the very lucky ones to get this competitive scholarship. Make good use of it because you are the ones to lead your country in the future.
Speaking on behalf of the recipients, Gwen Ruruatu Tovusia assured the Taiwanese embassy of their commitment to complete their studies and to return to serve the country.
“We appreciate the scholarship therefore we assure your government that we will be making good use of the opportunity and return home with something valuable for our country.
