Nov 21, 2017 Culture Comments Off on Tsai: Added direct flights will make Taiwan-Palau exchanges easier
President Tsai Ing-wen says that more direct flights between Taiwan and Palau will make exchanges between the two allied nations easier.
Tsai was speaking Tuesday during a meeting with a Palauan delegation led by the speaker of the country's House of Delegates, Sabino Anastacio. Tsai said that Palau is a popular vacation spot for Taiwanese tourists. She said the additional direct flights, scheduled to begin next year, will make it easier for people from each country to visit the other.
During the meeting, Tsai also thanked Anastacio and Palauan President Tommy Remengesau for their support of Taiwan. She also spoke about medical exchanges between Taiwan and Palau. Tsai said that in addition to sending medical personnel to Palau, Taiwan also welcomes nearly 500 Palauan nationals seeking medical treatment each year.
Students from Palau also come to Taiwan for training in the medical field. Tsai said that two Palauan students who graduated this year from I Shou University's School of Medicine for International Students are now back in Palau using what they have learned. She said this is a great example of the results of bilateral cooperation.
