Minister Francois Wu (吳志中) has only one thing on his itinerary for the Lunar New Year holiday: to get some rest.

Asked during a recent interview about his plans for the six-day break, Wu noted the extremely tight schedule he had kept since assuming his position on May 20 last year.

“So my only plan and wish is to fully rest up and sleep for six days to make up for my lost sleep during the past months,” he said.

A renowned expert in political science and geopolitics as well as French culture, Wu served as a visiting scholar at Harvard, visiting professor at IEP Lyon and professor at Soochow University before accepting the offer to become deputy foreign minister.

Son of former Vice Premier Wu Rong-i (吳榮義), Wu is the first scholar to take up the post.    [FULL  STORY]
