2nd German parliamentary group to arrive in Taiwan Oct. 23: MOFA

Members of the Bundestag’s Committee on Human Rights and Humanitarian Aid will visit Taiwan from Oct. 23 to 26, the second group of German parliamentarians to visit the country this month, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) announced on Thursday.


Peter Heidt of the Free Democratic Party will lead the six-member delegation, MOFA said in a press release.


During their four-day-trip, they will meet President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) and two ministers without portfolio, Lo Ping-cheng (羅秉成) and Huang Chih-ta (黃致達), it said.


The delegation will also meet with Foreign Minister Joseph Wu (吳釗燮) and National Human Rights Commission Chairperson Chen Chu (陳菊), according to MOFA.


MOFA added that the delegation would visit Taiwan’s National Human Rights Museum and discuss human rights cooperation with local NGOs and think tanks.


The upcoming trip is the second by German lawmakers this month, following the Oct. 2 to 6 visit to Taipei of a seven-person delegation headed by German-Taiwan Parliamentary Friendship Group Chairman Klaus-Peter Willsch, according to MOFA.
