Taiwan has also sent groups to El Salvador several times to learn about its investment environment and industrial engineering. Next, we will continue working hard along with the Salvadorian government, and encourage the business sector to make use of the FTA between the two sides to explore new trade and cooperative ties," said Tsai.
During the meeting, President Tsai Ing-we also sent her greetings to El Salvador President Salvador Sanchez Ceren and welcomed him to visit Taiwan.
