Tsai Arrives in Asuncion to Strengthen Friendship between Paraguay and Taiwan

ASUNCION - Taiwanese president Tsai Ing-wen arrived in Paraguay tonight for an official visit to the country, one of her few allies in the region, where she plans to meet with her counterpart Paraguayan president Horacio Cartes and institutional representatives on Tuesday.

During her three-day stay, the new Taiwanese president is scheduled to sign an air transport agreement with Cartes within an agenda that aims to deepen the "ties of friendship" and strengthen cooperation in various fields, according to a statement from the embassy of Taiwan in Paraguay.

Apart from meeting with Cartes, Tsai will also deliver a speech in the Paraguayan congress and meet with Supreme Court of Justice president Alicia Pucheta.

Another highlight of the visit will be the inauguration of the newly-built Taiwanese embassy in Paraguay.

Tsai's visit to Paraguay will be her second official visit as president since she rose to power in late May after attending the inauguration of the Panama Canal expansion last weekend.

Tsai, who was elected president of Taiwan in January and took the office in May, has achieved a historic feat for her Progressive Democratic Party (PDP) despite her short political experience.

At the age of 59, Tsai became the first female president of Taiwan after earning 56.2 percent of votes compared to 31 percent of her main rival Eric Chu of the Kuomintang party.
