Minister Khumalo receiving a gift from Taiwan Minister of Foreign Affairs Miguel Tsao


Taiwan’s largest fertiliser company Taiwan Fertilizer Co. Ltd is looking for an Eswatini company to partner with. This is one the companies that Minister of Commerce, Industry and Trade Manqoba Khumalo is negotiating with to set up shop in Eswatini. The Minister recently visited Taiwan with the aim of marketing the country to potential
investors as well as sign the Rules of Procedures for the Taiwan-Eswatini Economic Cooperation Agreement (ECA).
According Khumalo, he visited Taiwan Fertilizer Co. Ltd where the company directors expressed their desire to partner with a Swati company that they could work with to explore the local and regional market. If they find the partner, it will be set up in the Kingdom. Taiwan Fertilizer Co. Ltd produces and sells fertiliser and chemical
products in Taiwan and internationally. It provides fertiliser products, such as ammonium sulphate, urea, single super phosphate, potassium chloride, potassium sulphate, organic and biotech organic compound fertilisers, compound and organic fertilisers, instant water soluble fertilisers, taifer bio-power stimulants, and dolomite products. The company also offers chemical products, including urea for industrial applications, melamine, sulphuric acid,
anhydrous ammonia, nitric acid, sulphuric acid, and ileum. On another note, Minister Khumalo paid a courtesy visit to the Taiwan Ministry of Foreign Affairs. He also toured Hsinchu Science Park, where he was hosted by the Deputy Director General of the Park, Andrea Hsu. Addressing the Minister of Foreign Affairs in Taiwan Miguel Tsao and
officials from the ministry, Khumalo explained that the Kingdom of Eswatini was working around the clock to establish an enabling environment for economic growth and equitable prosperity. “It is against this background that
my ministry works hard to find different economic development models that are used in different countries
to get the one that works best for the Kingdom of Eswatini,” said Khumalo, adding that as a developing country striving towards first world status, they are determined to use all the available assistance they can get from their bilateral friends in developed countries to help them develop a module fit for Eswatini. He said the current economic outlook of the world would be looking forward to curb future challenges. The minister also commended
Taiwan for the recent 90 days’ visa waiver; which he said could not have come at a better time for Emaswati
wishing to travel to Taiwan. “The Government of the Kingdom of Eswatini is very grateful to the Government of the Republic of China (Taiwan) as this waiver will boost bilateral tourism, trade exchanges and strengthen the flow of business between the two countries,” he said
