Taipei, May 27 (CNA) President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) declared satisfaction with the Taiwan delegation’s performance at this year’s World Health Assembly (WHA) in Geneva, Switzerland and expressed her hope that Taiwan can continue to participate in the annual meeting.
Tsai made the remarks during a meeting with members of the delegation at the Presidential Office Friday, shortly after the group, led by Health Minister Lin Tzou-yien (林奏延), returned to Taiwan from Geneva.
In the meeting, the president underscored the necessity of Taiwan’s presence in the global health and care mechanism, particularly in the area of quarantine efforts.
The principle behind Taiwan’s attendance at the WHA is to be professional and pragmatic, and to contribute to and participate in the global health system, Tsai said. [FULL STORY]
