TECC Deputy Rep.: Taiwan, India staunch partners in post-Covid19 era

Taiwan’s Acting Ambassador to India Jack C. H. Chen, while talking with mainstream news channel World Is One News (WION), said he is optimistic that through a joint effort following the Covid-19 pandemic, Taiwan and India as democratic countries will become staunch partners in the Indo-Pacific region.

On Taiwan’s membership in the World Health Organization (WHO), Chen said “We hope that India as the new Chair of WHO’s Executive Board will help ensure the WHO Secretariat maintains a professional, neutral stance when considering issues related to Taiwan’s participation, such as granting Taiwan observer status at the World Health Assembly and including Taiwan in all WHO meetings, mechanisms and activities.”
