Canadian lawmakers will visit to promote relations

TAIPEI -- A group of Canadian parliamentarians is scheduled to begin a six-day visit to Taiwan Monday to learn more about the development of bilateral ties and Taiwan's political and economic environment, according to Taiwan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The cross-party delegation is headed by Member of Parliament Chris Warkentin and includes Senator Tobias Enverga Jr., both of the Conservative Party, the ministry said in a statement on Sunday.

Tarik Brahmi of the New Democratic Party and Brad Butt of the Conservative Party, both members in the House of Commons, will also be part of the delegation, it added.

The lawmakers are scheduled to meet with President Ma Ying-jeou and call on officials from the ministries of foreign affairs, economic affairs and education, as well as Taiwanese legislators, the ministry said.

Meanwhile, the Canadian delegation will visit the Council of Agriculture and the Straits Exchange Foundation (SEF), Taiwan's semi-official negotiating body with China, to learn more about cross-Taiwan Strait ties, the ministry said.
