President Ma Ying-jeou said Jan. 26 that ROC-Paraguay ties are going
from strength to strength as both sides pursue an array of opportunities across a spectrum of areas.
“Exchanges between the ROC and Paraguay have seen considerable growth in recent years,” Ma said. “This underscores the effectiveness of efforts in boosting bilateral exchanges and interactions.”
The president made the remarks while receiving a nine-member delegation led by Mario Abdo Benitez, president of the Paraguayan senate, at the Presidential Office in Taipei City. Also attending were Hou Ching-shan, ROC deputy minister of foreign affairs, and Marcial Bobadilla Guillen, Paraguay’s ambassador to the ROC.
According to Ma, two-way exchanges are expanding on the basis of Taiwan’s role as a provider of new technology and humanitarian aid in the international community. [FULL STORY]
