Taiwan’s President Visits Colonial City of La Antigua in Guatemala

GUATEMALA CITY – The President of Taiwan Tsai Ing-wen on Wednesday visited the colonial city of La Antigua, 50 kilometers from Guatemala City, along with all the retinue that accompanies her on her Central American visit.

Tsai, who arrived in Guatemala on Wednesday, was also accompanied by the president of the Central American country, Jimmy Morales, his wife, Patricia Marroquin, and Guatemalan Vice President Jafeth Cabrera, among other local officials.

The Taiwanese leader, who toured some of the most emblematic places in this enclave – designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site on Oct. 26, 1979 – stopped at some craft stalls and watched several demonstrations of folk dances.

La Antigua, located about 50 kilometers from the capital of this Central American country, is an international tourist landmark. It is home to ruins of buildings, temples, churches, shrines, cobbled streets and monuments of Spanish colonial architecture.

The objectives of Tsai’s visit are to promote tourism, trade, investment and cooperation between the two nations, which is why she is accompanied by legislators from her country, as well as business leaders.

Taiwan maintains diplomatic ties with 21 countries, of which 12 are in Latin America and the Caribbean.

With Guatemala, one of the four Central American countries with which Taiwan has diplomatic ties, relations go back 82 years.

Tsai, who will visit the Congress and the Supreme Court this Thursday before leaving for El Salvador, her last stop in the region, has already visited Honduras and Nicaragua.
