Foreign Minister David Lee is set to attend the inauguration of Haiti’s incoming
president – Jovenel Moïse – on February 7. Lee will represent the Republic of China (ROC), which is the official name of Taiwan’s government.
The foreign ministry said on Monday that Lee and his wife are set to meet with both the incoming and outgoing presidents and the foreign minister. They will also attend an inaugural banquet and visit the headquarters of a local charity – Food for the Poor – with which Taiwan is closely involved.
The ROC and Haiti have held official diplomatic relations for more than 60 years. Taiwan’s foreign ministry says that Moïse attaches great importance to bilateral ties and is looking forward to working with Taiwan to promote various cooperative efforts to benefit the people of both countries.
