Taipei, July 3 (CNA) President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) said Monday during a meeting with Honduras’
parliamentary speaker that she welcomes imports of beef and sweet melons from the Central American nation and that progress is being made on making that happen.
Tsai expressed the hope that Taiwan-Honduras exchanges can be deepened and said Taiwan has sent trade and business delegations and coffee procurement groups to Honduras several times this year to advance economic exchanges.
Taiwan has also been working actively to address procedures needed to open the way for the entry of Honduran farm and livestock products, including beef and sweet melons, she said.
“Big progress will be made,” Tsai pledged during a meeting with visiting Honduran National Congress President Mauricio Oliva Herrera at the Presidential Office, noting that she expects Honduran agricultural products to hit Taiwan’s market soon. [FULL STORY]
