VILNIUS – Lithuania’s Deputy Transport Minister Agne Vaiciukeviciute, accompanied by a delegation of local businesspeople, is visiting Taiwan this week to discuss potential transport cooperation, the Transport Ministry reported on Monday.
In Taipei, Vaiciukeviciute is scheduled to meet with Taiwanese deputy ministers of transportation and communications, economy and foreign affairs.
“Opportunities for cooperation between Lithuania and Taiwan range from semiconductors and electric car production to the development of advanced technologies. Together it may be easier to address the issues and transport sector’s challenges in the context of climate change and geopolitical developments,” a press release from the ministry quoted Vaiciukeviciute as saying.
The delegation includes representatives of the seaport of Klaipeda, electric bus manufacturer Vejo Projektai, Altas Auto and Elinta Robotics. Vejo Projektai and Tangeng Advanced Vehicles Co, the leading Taiwanese producer of passenger and commercial vehicles, will sign a memorandum of understanding.
In addition, possibilities for the transport of passengers and cargo on flights between Lithuania and Taiwan will be discussed with the representatives of China Airlines.
Lithuania plans to open its trade representative office in Taipei in September, which is expected to give an impetus for bilateral cooperation in the areas of business, economy, research and innovation, culture and transport.
