Legislative President Su Jia-chyuan will lead a delegation of lawmakers to Japan later this month. The delegation will attend the annual meeting of the Asian-Pacific Parliamentarians' Union (APPU). That's the word from Su's deputy, Tsai Chi-chang , on Tuesday.
Su's delegation will leave on September 17 for the meeting. The meeting will be held September 18-20 in Oita prefecture, Kyushu.
Tsai said Taiwan and Japan share strong parliamentary ties. He said Su last year led the largest ever legislative delegation to Japan. He also said that more than 100 of Taiwan's 113 lawmakers have taken part in the Taiwan-Japan Parliamentary Friendship Association. Tsai also said Taiwan is keen to work with Japan to preserve peace and stability in the region.
The Tokyo-based APPU was founded in 1965 for parliamentary exchanges between its five founding members. These were Japan, Taiwan, the Philippines, Thailand and South Korea. The organization now has 21 members.
