Taiwanese President Arrives in El Salvador with Agenda for Cooperation

SAN SALVADOR – Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen is scheduled to arrive on Thursday for an official visit to El Salvador, where she will stay for two days and will address economic and trade cooperation matters with President Salvador Sanchez Ceren and other officials.

Tsai, who ends a six-day Central American trip in El Salvador, will arrive from Guatemala to the Monseńor Oscar Arnulfo Romero International Airport at 4:30 p.m. (2330 GMT), from where she will be transferred to a hotel in the capital for a trade and investment meeting with government officials.

Tsai will meet with Salvadoran President Salvador Sanchez Ceren on Friday at the Presidential House to discuss investment matters in the Central American country.

Also on her agenda is a visit to the San Salvador Cathedral, where the remains of the martyr and the Blessed Salvadoran Monsignor Oscar Arnulfo Romero, who was assassinated on March 24, 1980 in the country’s civil war.

El Salvador established diplomatic relations with Taiwan in June 1941, which have been strengthened by various meetings and the opening of the Taiwanese embassy in 1961.

In recent years, Taiwan’s cooperation with El Salvador has focused especially on projects to benefit women, schoolchildren, agriculture, health, safety, environment and small businesses, among others.

On Monday, the president began a trip to Central America with her visit to Honduras, where she met with the president of that nation, Juan Orlando Hernandez; later she visited Nicaragua, where she attended president Daniel Ortega’s inauguration.

She then traveled to Guatemala, where she met with the country’s president, Jimmy Morales, and other state officials.

Tsai will conclude her El Salvador visit on Friday, from where she will fly to San Francisco, California, to continue working meetings, the government of El Salvador reported.

Taiwan, considered a rebel province by China, maintains diplomatic ties with about 20 countries and a dozen of them are in Latin America and the Caribbean.

China, which claims sovereignty over the island, does not allow its allies to maintain official ties with Taiwan and opposes Taiwan’s participation in intergovernmental organizations.
