Prime Minister Apisai Ielemia sent a letter on August 24th to President Ma Ying-jeou of Taiwan to express Tuvalu's concern for the nation's great losses after Typhoon Morakot struck a couple of weeks ago. Mr. Ielemia also extended condolences to families of the victims.

In addition, Tuvalu has made contribution of US $210,000 (equivalent to 1% of Tuvalu’s GDP) in order to assist Taiwan in its relief and reconstruction work.
