Taiwan to send farming product delegates to US
The government will organize a delegation to the United States next month to purchase agricultural products and discuss agricultural issues with U.S. officials and representatives of agricultural exporters, a foreign affairs official said Thursday.
The delegation will sign a letter of intent on procurement of agricultural products with representatives of U.S. agricultural exporters during the Sept. 13-24 visit, said Christine Hsueh, director-general of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ Department of North American Affairs, at a news briefing.
The delegation will first visit Washington and sign the letter of intent at Capitol Hill, before separating into two groups to visit different states in central and western parts of the U.S. that are major agricultural producers, she said.
One of the groups will focus on the procurement of corn and soybeans and will visit Iowa, Minnesota and Kentucky, she said.
