Vice President Chen Chien-jen says he hopes that Taiwan and Japan can forge deeper ties in the future. Chen was speaking Monday during a meeting with a Japanese delegation led by Fukuoka Prefecture Mayor Hiroshi Ogawa.
Chen said the two sides can collaborate more closely in innovative industries such as green energy, smart machines, biotechnology and medical care. The vice president also said he hopes that Taiwan and Japan can work together to explore overseas markets. That's in light of the Taiwan government's active promotion of its New Southbound Policy to strengthen ties with South and Southeast Asia, Australia, and New Zealand.
Chen said Taiwan and Fukuoka Prefecture have maintained close ties. He thanked the mayor for setting up a donation box there after southern Taiwan was struck by a powerful earthquake about a year ago.
In recent years, Fukuoka Prefecture has dedicated considerable resources to conducting R&D in the field of hydrogen energy. Last March, the mayor gave a speech at a symposium on hydrogen energy in the southern city of Kaohsiung to share his prefecture's experiences.
