Former premier Yu Shyi-kun yesterday said he plans to express the public’s and the
government’s expectations of further cooperation and exchanges during his attendance at US president-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration in Washington on Friday.
Yu made the remarks after arriving on Monday at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, where he was received by Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in New York Director Hsu Li-wen (徐儷文) and Peng Liang-chih (彭良治), director of the Democratic Progressive Party’s (DPP) eastern US branch.
“I believe that the government would actively engage with the new US administration through various channels in the hope of seeking reciprocity and a win-win situation based on shared interests and values,” Yu said. [FULL STORY]
