Taipei, Sept. 2 (CNA) Czech Senate President Miloš Vystrčil said during a meeting with Premier Su Tseng-chang (蘇貞昌) on Wednesday that his current visit to Taiwan is aimed at connecting the two countries.

Taiwan and the Czech Republic share the values of freedom and democracy, he said, expressing hope that the two countries can further expand their cooperation in the fields of economy, technology and innovation in a way that creates mutual benefits for both sides, Vystrčil said.

Meanwhile, Su for his part noted the Czech Senate's approval of a double taxation agreement signed by the two sides that will come into effect from 2021.

Su said he believes the agreement will encourage more Taiwanese businesses to invest in the central European country, where Taiwan companies have invested over US$1 billion.
