Czech delegation headed by Lower House speaker arrives in Taiwan

An official delegation from the Czech Republic, headed by speaker of the Chamber of Deputies, Markéta Pekarová Adamová, arrived in Taiwan on Saturday on a five-day visit aimed at boosting mutual ties between the two states.

The 160-strong delegation included representatives of some 100 Czech companies, as well as academia, lawmakers and others. Mrs Pekarová Adamová was welcomed at the airport by her counterpart You Si-kun and Foreign Minister Joseph Wu.

In the course of the visit, the Czech Lower House speaker is scheduled to address the Taiwanese parliament and hold talks with President Tsai Ing-wen. She will also attend the opening of the Czech Hub in Taipei, and give a speech at National Taiwan University.
