Honduran President to Begin State Visit to Taiwan on Saturday

TAIPEI – The president of Honduras will begin a five-day state visit to Taiwan on Saturday, the Taiwanese foreign ministry said Friday.

During the visit, Juan Orlando Hernandez will meet his Taiwanese counterpart, Tsai Ing-wen, and exchange honorary decorations.

The Taiwanese president will confer on Hernandez the Order of Brilliant Jade for his contributions to the strengthening of bilateral ties.

Meanwhile, Honduras will award Tsai with the Order of Francisco Morazan Grand Cross with Gold Star, according to the ministry.

On Monday, Hernandez will be given a state welcome by Tsai and the two will hold a meeting at the presidential palace later, the ministry added in a statement.

This is Hernandez’s third visit to the island and he will be accompanied by a 21-member delegation and will preside over an event to promote trade and investment in Taipei, the ministry said.

Hernandez is the first president from among Taiwan’s allies to make a state visit to Taiwan since Tsai Ing-wen took office on May 20.

Taiwan and Honduras closely cooperate in trade, social welfare, infrastructure, education and medical assistance and technology, the ministry added.

Honduras is one among the 22 countries, out of which 12 are located in Latin America and the Caribbean, who maintains diplomatic relations with Taiwan and not China.
