DPP's new envoy to visit US for one-week mission

Joseph Wu (吳釗燮), the Democratic Progressive Party's (DPP) newly appointed Washington envoy, said he is leaving next Monday on a one-week mission to the United States.

Wu is set to lay groundwork for the DPP's representative office, a long-closed chapter that is slated to reopen by next summer. He will be handling office personnel affairs, publicity and key diplomatic outreach.

“He is on a very tight schedule of visits with the U.S. State Department, Congress, think tanks and leaders of overseas Chinese,” said DPP Chairman Su Tseng-chang, who will not be accompanying Wu.

Instead, Wu will be joined by Department of Foreign Affairs Director Liu Shih-chung (劉世忠); Antonio Chiang (江春男), former deputy secretary-general to the National Security Council; and David Huang (黃偉峰), who was Taiwan's deputy representative to the U.S. under President Chen Shui-bian.

DPP spokesman Wang Min-sheng (王閔生) said that Su is to attend the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new representative office.
