President Tsai Ing-wen is calling on Taiwanese in Japan to support her administration’s social reforms and infrastructure projects. She made the call on Monday while meeting with leaders of the Taiwanese expatriate community in Japan.
President Tsai said the government will upgrade the industry structure now that there has been progress in social reforms and the economy has gradually taken a turn for the better.
Tsai also said she hopes that businesses in Taiwan and Japan will be able to work together to explore market potential.
Also on Monday, the government has decided to change the name of its representative office in Japan. That’s after Japan in January changed the name of its Taipei representative office from Interchange Association, Japan to the Japan-Taiwan Exchange Association.
Taiwan’s de facto embassy in Japan is called the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Japan. The Cabinet has decided to give it a new name with the word Taiwan in it.
