President Tsai Ing-wen's next overseas trip will be to the South Pacific. That was the word from foreign ministry official Paul Chang on Wednesday. The trip is expected to take place during the second half of the year.
"Our current plan is to go to South Pacific nations. Last year and in January of this year, the president visited Latin American countries. This time we choose to visit South Pacific countries. I think this is a good arrangement," said Chang.
Taiwan has diplomatic ties with Kiribati, the Marshall Islands, Nauru, Palau, the Solomon Islands, and Tuvalu. These six South Pacific nations account for a sizeable proportion of Taiwan's diplomatic allies.
