Honduran President Ends Visit to Taiwan with Business Meetings

TAIPEI – The president of Honduras on Tuesday ended his four-day official visit to Taiwan with a series of meetings with Taiwanese entrepreneurs aimed at strengthening bilateral trade and investment ties.

Juan Orlando Hernandez had lunch with around 60 Taiwanese entrepreneurs, from the energy, manufacturing and imports sectors, who attended a seminar on trade and investment promotion.

Honduran ministers of economic development and agriculture, Arnaldo Castill and Jacobo Alberto Paz, respectively, also took part in the forum.

After lunch, the Honduran president held private meetings with six tycoons from companies including recycling firm EVP Group, Limitex textile company and Gouriu, which manufactures footwear and tools, among others, Honduran ambassador to Taiwan, Rafael Fernando Sierra Quezada, told EFE.

“Honduras is becoming the gateway to the Americas for Taiwan and Taiwan is the gateway to Asia for Honduras,” Sierra explained.

The highlight of Hernandez’s trip was his meeting with his Taiwanese counterpart, Tsai Ing-wen.

After the meeting, the two leaders issued a joint statement reaffirming their commitment towards strengthening bilateral ties and promoting human rights, rule of law, democracy, and the fight against climate change.

The two also stressed the importance of dialogue for the maintenance of international peace and security, in a show of support for talks to resolve the dispute between China and Taiwan.

Honduras is one of 22 countries to maintain diplomatic relations with Taiwan and not China.
