TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – As preparations are underway at Taiwan’s Presidential Office for the National Day celebrations on October 10, two allied leaders are set to attend the celebrations and will be accompanied by the countries’ top officials.
Caribbean ally Saint Lucia announced Friday that Prime Minister Allen Chastanet will arrive in Taiwan with a five-member delegation, including the Minister of Economic Development, Guy Joseph.
Chastanet last visited Taiwan in November 2017 to meet President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文), who expressed hope that the two countries would continue to expand exchanges and offer each other steadfast support. During his stay, Chastanet will meet with Tsai, Legislative Speaker Su Jia-chyuan (蘇嘉全) and several other top-level officials.
Also, the President of Taiwan’s only South American ally, Paraguay, Mario Abdo Benitez, is set to attend the National Day celebrations, after he accepted Tsai’s invitation to join the event during her state visit in August. [FULL STORY]
