A six-member delegation from the Czech Senate, led by Peter Koliba, Chair of the Committee on Health and Social Policy, will visit Taiwan from May 29 to June 2 at the invitation of the Republic of China (Taiwan) government. The ROC Ministry of Foreign Affairs has expressed its welcome to the visit.

The visit will help delegation members gain a better understanding of recent developments concerning Taiwan’s medical insurance and public health policy. Senator Koliba and his colleagues will also engage in parliamentary exchanges, thereby facilitating further mutual understanding and cooperation.

While in Taiwan, Senator Koliba and delegates will meet with Legislative Yuan President Su Jia-chyuan, and call at the Ministry of Health and Welfare’s National Health Insurance Administration, Ministry of Science and Technology’s Joint Research Center for AI Technology and All Vista Healthcare, Ministry of Health and Welfare’s Taipei Hospital, and National Taiwan University Hospital Bei-Hu Branch’s nursing home. In addition to attending a luncheon hosted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the delegation will also visit sites of economic and cultural interest such as the National Palace Museum and Taipei 101.

Taiwan and the Czech Republic enjoy close, friendly relations built upon shared values of freedom, democracy, and respect for human rights. In addition, bilateral cooperation and exchanges between the two countries have grown steadily in the areas of economics and trade, culture, education, and science and technology. The Czech Republic remains a major European trading partner of Taiwan. Many of Taiwan’s IT firms have invested in Czech manufacturing facilities, and the two nations look to continue promoting exchanges on the existing cooperative foundation. (E)
