Foreign Affairs Committee delegation visit Taiwan
29 November 2022
The Foreign Affairs Committee is conducting a visit to Taiwan from 29 November to 2 December. The visit will inform the Committee’s inquiry into the tilt to the Indo-Pacific.
During the visit, the Committee will meet President Tsai Ing-Wen. The Committee will also meet the Secretary-General of the National Security Council, Wellington Koo, and Premier and President of the Executive Yuan, Su Tseng-chang, as well as various other officials.
Foreign Affairs Committee Chair, Alicia Kearns MP, said:
“This visit to Taiwan has long been a priority for the Foreign Affairs Committee. The UK is fortunate to enjoy strong cultural and trading ties with Taiwan, fostering shared ambitions on clean energy, education, advanced new technologies and more. The multiple challenges to security and prosperity across the globe make constructive ties between democracies, such as those enjoyed by the UK and Taiwan, all the more important.
“The Indo-Pacific, and the strength of our relationships in the region, is of huge importance to the UK. Within the Indo-Pacific region, Taiwan’s voice is unique and invaluable. Over the course of our visit, the Committee looks forward to hearing from a range of individuals, from politicians to businesses and civil society groups.”
