TAIPEI -- Palau's Senate President Camsek Chin arrived in Taipei Sunday for a five-day visit, during which he will meet with President Ma Ying-jeou and tour government facilities and private businesses to update his knowledge of the country's development, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) said Sunday.
Chin, heading a seven-member parliamentary delegation that also includes Vice Senate President Phillip P. Reklai and four senators, will stay in Taiwan until April 4, the MOFA said in a press release.
Apart from its planned meeting with Ma, the delegation will visit the Environmental Protection Administration and businesses devoted to high-quality livestock breeding and recycling to borrow their practices and experiences to help the Palau government outline its agricultural and environmental protection policies, the MOFA said.
It is the fourth time Chin has visited Taiwan to promote diplomatic relations between the two countries. Chin has previously served as vice president of Palau from January 2005 to January 2009.
