President Tsai Ing-wen has welcomed Britain's new representative to Taiwan, Catherine Nettleton.
Tsai met with Nettleton on Tuesday morning at the Presidential Office. She welcomed Nettleton to Taiwan and said she hopes to see more collaboration between Taiwan and the UK in the future.
Tsai said, "We spoke [with British trade officials] a while back about Taiwan's plan to integrate resources and to invest in the internet of things, biotechnology, medicines, green energy, intelligent mechanics, the national defense industry, new agriculture, and other important industries. Now, these projects are in their implementation phase. I think they present lots of opportunities for collaboration between Taiwan and Britain."
