Lawmakers from across party lines have established a new parliamentary friendship group for the Czech Republic and Austria.


The group is a reorganization of the parliamentary friendship group for Czechia, which was established during the previous Legislature.


The newly formed group covering the two European countries is headed by KMT lawmaker Wan Mei-ling and includes 11 other lawmakers as vice-chairs, who come from the KMT, the DPP and the Taiwan People's Party. According to Wan, some 50 members of the legislature have so far joined the group, and more are expected to join in the coming weeks.

Speaking to reporters, Wan said the friendship between Taiwan and the Czech Republic, as well as Austria, has deepened as a result of efforts by cross-party lawmakers.


Vice legislative speaker Johnny Chiang is expressing his hope that parliamentary exchanges will continue to deepen and broaden Taiwan's interactions with the two countries while Deputy Foreign Minister Tien Chong-guang is thanking lawmakers for their efforts to promote friendship with their foreign counterparts, saying friendship group could help his office boost practical collaborations and interactions with the two countries.
