The Marshall Islands government has added $US650,000 to the Marshalls Trust Fund.

The government initially contributed $US30-million to the fund when it was created in 2004.

The Fund Chair Nikolao Pula says the annual supplemental contributions help ensure sustainability of the Trust Fund beyond 2023.

This year the US contributed over $US14.5 million and Taiwan $US2.4 million.

At the end of 2014 fiscal year, the audited value of the fund was over $US240-million.
