AIT and TECRO Senior Representatives Celebrate Taiwan’s Contribution to the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS
WASHINGTON — At a December 12 ceremony hosted by the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) in Washington, D.C., AIT Managing Director Ingrid Larson and Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office in the United States (TECRO) Representative Alexander Tah-Ray Yui celebrated TECRO’s contribution to support stabilization programs in communities impacted by ISIS in northeast Syria.
TECRO’s contribution will support projects in the cities of Hasakah and Deir Ezzor, which will improve public health, enhance quality of life, and develop the capacity of first responders.
With TECRO’s contribution, these programs can continue vital work to revitalize and strengthen civil society in northeast Syria. This work includes initiatives such as rehabilitation and maintenance of deteriorating water and sanitation infrastructure and support for local firefighting brigades in Deir Ezzor, which protect farmland, residential, and commercial areas.
