In the final stretch of her first state trip abroad, President Tsai Ing-wen on Wednesday signed an
air transport agreement with Taiwan’s only South American diplomatic ally and vowed to increase Taiwan’s import quota for Paraguayan beef.
The Air Transport Agreement will allow the two countries to lay the foundation for air transport cooperation, Tsai said.
The signing ceremony was overseen by Tsai and Paraguay President Horacio Cartes, while Taiwan’s Foreign Minister David Lee (李大維) and his counterpart Eladio Loizaga inked the pact.
She went on to say that the agreement not only reaffirmed the two countries’ diligence in maintaining economic and trade ties, but would also support their collaboration in the technical and education sectors. [FULL STORY]
