Jul 25, 2018 General Comments Off on Marshall Islands President Heine to arrive in Taiwan Thursday: MOFA
Taipei, Marshall Islands President Hilda C. Heine will arrive in Taiwan on Thursday on a one-week visit and will meet with top government officials, as the two countries seek to expand bilateral cooperation, Taiwan's foreign ministry said Wednesday.
Heine will meet with President Tsai Ing-wen (???) and Foreign Minister Joseph Wu (???) and will also witness the signing of a visa-free program and an agreement on marine patrol cooperation between her country and Taiwan, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) said in a statement.
Taiwan and the Marshall Islands established diplomatic relations in 1998 and have maintained since then close cooperation in areas such as medical care, energy, agriculture and the cultivation of talent, MOFA said.
As the two sides seek to expand their cooperative ties during Heine's one-week visit, she will also meet with officials of the Ministry of Economic Affairs, the Ministry of Transportation and Communications, and the Council of Agriculture, according to MOFA.
Heine and her delegation will also explore Taiwan's history and culture through visits to the National Palace Museum in Taipei, Chimei Museum in Tainan and Meinong Hakka Culture Museum in Kaohsiung, MOFA indicated in its press release.
The Marshall Islands president last visited Taiwan in May 2016 for Tsai's inauguration, MOFA said.
