TAIPEI--Legislative Speaker Wang Jin-pyng said yesterday he will lead a delegation on a visit to Japan to show Taiwan's support for the earthquake-devastated country and help resolve the matter of donations from Taiwan's private sectors.
The seven-member delegation, including government officials and representatives from the Red Cross Society of the Republic of China and World Vision Taiwan, will depart for Japan on April 20 and return on April 22, Wang said.
The visit will be a low-profile one in view of the fact that Japan is in a stage of post-disaster recovery, he said.
Wang will meet officials of the democratic and liberal parties in Japan, according to Kuomintang Legislator Lee Hung-chun.
