New Delhi, April 15 (CNA) Taiwan's top envoy to India, Tien Chung-kwang was awarded the Global Achievers Award by the New Delhi-based Citizens' Integration Peace Society on Sunday in recognition of his contribution to Taiwan-India relations.
In his acceptance speech, Tien, who has served as head of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Center in India since 2013, said bilateral relations have seen significant progress in recent years in the economic, education and tourism spheres.
