Taiwan President Meets with Honduran Political, Business Leaders

TEGUCIGALPA – Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen, along with legislators and entrepreneurs from her country, met Monday in Tegucigalpa with their Honduran counterparts, as part of the state visit to Central America they began Sunday.

The meeting was convened at the hotel where the Taiwanese president is staying along with her large committee that includes owners and executives of private companies in the Asian nation.

Tsai also paid a visit Monday to the Basilica of Our Lady of Suyapa on the extreme east side of Tegucigalpa, where she was received by Honduran Cardinal Oscar Andres Rodriguez.

In the Basilica of Our Lady of Suyapa, patroness of Honduras, the Taiwanese president placed a floral tribute before the religious image of the Virgin Mary revered by Honduran Catholics.

Afterwards she traveled to the other side of Tegucigalpa, where along a boulevard was a scale model of Taipei Tower 101, one of Asia’s tallest buildings.

There Tegucigalpa Mayor Nasry Asura presented the keys of the city to Tsai, who on Sunday kicked off a tour of Central America, which will include stops in Nicaragua, Guatemala and El Salvador.

Tsai was also to meet Monday with Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez, with whom she will discuss trade and cooperation matters of mutual interest, among other topics.

The two presidents will make a statement to the press, after which the Honduran president will offer a luncheon to Tsai and her committee.

After visiting Honduras, Tsai will travel later Monday to Nicaragua, the second stop on her Central American visit.

Taiwan maintains ties with 21 countries, of which 12 are in Latin America and the Caribbean, a region that is therefore a bastion of Taiwanese diplomacy.
