Costa Rica switch from ROC to PRC

In 2007, he submitted his resignation to President Chen Shui-bian following the severing of ties between Costa Rica and the Republic of China in June 2007.[2] However, Chen rejected this and Huang has stayed on in the government.


In May 2008, days before his term was to expire with the outgoing Chen administration, he resigned over the loss of public money equivalent to US$30 million during a controversial failed attempt to secure diplomatic ties with Papua New Guinea.[3]
