The speech will center on her personal story, which she will also use to share with her audience and engage in discussions with them about the transformation of Taiwan and Kaohsiung over the last few decades.
Chen has been invited to the CSIS by Bonnie Glaser, a senior adviser for Asia at the center and director of its China Power Project. Glaser visited Kaohsiung City last year, the statement said.
The China Power Project focuses on providing analyses to facilitate informed discussions about the complexities, capabilities, and potential outcomes of China's rise.
Chen will leave Kaohsiung on Saturday and deliver her speech at CSIS on March 20.
While in the U.S., she will visit the National September 11 Memorial & Museum in New York City to pay homage to victims of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.
As part of her itinerary, the mayor will also tour the Baltimore Visitor Center to learn about its Inner Harbor 2.0 plan, which is aimed at increasing the quality of public open spaces near the harbor, according to the release.
Chen is expected to return to Taiwan on March 26, it said.
