TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – It was first reported on Dec. 18 that Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je (柯文哲) is planning a trip to the United States in the spring of next year.

It has since been reported that during the trip Ko will visit the U.S. think tank, the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), which is located in Washington D.C.

This confirms the speculation of some that Ko was planning to visit the U.S. capital in his role as the mayor of Taipei. The news is likely to fuel even more speculation surrounding a possible presidential bid.

Upmedia reports that in early December several researchers and aides from CSIS made a visit to Taipei City Hall to hold a closed door meeting with Ko. It was reportedly at this meeting that Ko began planning his visit to Washington D.C., which has been confirmed for March, 2019.    [FULL  STORY]
