On 4th July, 2018, Mr. Ruey-Yng Wang, Director of General Planning Department, Council of Indigenous Peoples (CIP), Taiwan (R.O.C.) visited H.E. Ambassador Limasene Teatu at the Embassy of Tuvalu, R.O.C. (Taiwan). Director Wang cordially invites Ambassador Teatu to attend "2018 Austronesian Forum" in the beginning of August this year. Indigenous peoples in Taiwan share many common grounds with Tuvaluan people; therefore, CIP and Taiwanese government expect more cooperation between Tuvalu and Taiwan in the future. Director Wang further mentioned that CIP is working with Ministry of Foreign Affairs to organize the workshops and training programs for the youth and women empowerment in the coming year. We are looking forward to it!
