Taipei, Nov. 1 (CNA) The Ministry of Foreign Affairs will host a meeting later this month with parliamentarians and scholars from Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) member states to raise awareness of Taiwan's "new southbound policy," it said Tuesday.

Kay Lin, deputy director general of the ministry's Department of East Asian and Pacific Affairs, said the Taiwan-ASEAN dialogue, the first of its kind, will be held on Nov. 15.

The aim is to actively embark on dialogue on various issues with ASEAN countries, strengthen the content of the "new southbound policy," and find innovative ways to build solid relations with ASEAN countries, she said.

President Tsai Ing-wen will attend the meeting and deliver an address, Lin said.

Taiwanese attendees and parliamentarians from ASEAN countries will hold a roundtable dialogue, and Taiwanese scholars will discuss trade cooperation, cross-border cooperation and talent cultivation with their Southeast Asian counterparts.

Taiwan is hoping that these "brainstorming" sessions will help ASEAN countries better understand the "new southbound policy" and get their views on cooperation, Lin said.

The ministry is in the process of finalizing the list of invited guests, she said. (Courtesy of CNA)
