Taiwan opens Lithuania office
Taiwan on Thursday officially opened its new representative office in Lithuania.
It comes despite retaliatory sanctions launched by China against the Baltic state over the latter's decision to allow the use of "Taiwanese" in the office's name.
The Taiwanese Representative Office in Lithuania was opened in the nation's capital Vilnius, with Eric Huang, currently Taiwan's chief of Mission in Latvia, appointed as the nation's first representative to Lithuania.
According to MOFA, the new office will facilitate bilateral cooperation in various fields, including semiconductors, lasers and fintech.
Its opening will “charter a new and promising course for bilateral relations between Taiwan and Lithuania”.
