AIT chairman on Taiwan visit
Taipei, April 24 (CNA) American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) Chairman James Moriarty arrived in Taiwan Sunday for a one-week visit, during which he will meet with top government officials and businesspeople, the AIT and Taiwan's foreign ministry said Monday.
It is Moriarty's second trip to Taiwan since his appointment as AIT chairman last October, according to the AIT, which represents U.S. interests in Taiwan in the absence of official ties.
Moriarty is scheduled to meet with a number of senior political and business figures, including local government officials in Tainan and representatives of various sectors there, the AIT said in a statement.
In a separate statement, Taiwan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) said Moriarty will meet with President Tsai Ing-wen and visit a number of government agencies to discuss various bilateral issues.
Taiwan and the United States have had strong and close relations in recent years, according to the foreign ministry.
The two sides have maintained bilateral cooperation on political, security, economic, trade, cultural and educational matters and are working through the U.S.-Taiwan Global Cooperation and Training Framework to address global issues such as public health, women's empowerment and humanitarian aid, the ministry said.
Moriarty's April 23-29 visit will help enhance mutual understanding and relations between Taiwan and the U.S., the ministry said. (Courtesy of CNA)
