The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is thanking the US government for inviting Taiwan to attend President Joe Biden's "Summit for Democracy."


The event will be held next month and Taiwan is among the 110 delegations invited to the summit.


According to the foreign ministry, Taiwan will be represented by Minister without Portfolio Audrey Tang, who will share Taiwan's experiences in strengthening democratic governance through the use of technology with participants at the summit.


Taiwan's top diplomat to the US Hsiao Bi-khim will also join Tang at the summit.


The State Department has said the summit is expected to focus on three principle themes -- those being "defending against authoritarianism, fighting corruption, and promoting respect for human rights."


The event is being held virtually.
