Taiwanese President Urges Honduran Students to Help Deepen Bilateral Ties

TEGUCIGALPA – Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen has urged Honduran alumni from Taiwanese exchange programs to work to deepen the friendship between the two countries.

During a meeting with the students in Tegucigalpa, where President Tsai Ing-wen arrived late on Sunday, she urged the students to support the strengthening of ties between the two countries and serve as bridges for Taiwanese people to invest in Honduras.

Speaking in the presence of Taiwanese Honduras Ambassador Alejandro Huang, Tsai stressed the importance of scholarship exchanges, noting that such programs will help the Asian country to extend and expand beyond its borders.

At least 300 Hondurans have studied in Taiwan and are presently working in public institutions, private companies and non-profits.

Tsai is in the Honduras for the first leg of her Central American tour to strengthen ties with the region, and is accompanied by a large delegation.

Following her meeting with the Honduran students, Tsai attended a dinner hosted in her honor by members of the Taiwanese community residing in Honduras.

On Monday, she will take part in a meeting between Taiwanese lawmakers and their Honduran counterparts as well as meet with businessmen.

During the trip, Tsai will also hold a private meeting with Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez.

Taiwan and Honduras share close military, education and economic ties and Taiwan is currently financing several Honduran projects in technology and agriculture.
