First EU Parliament Delegation Visits Taiwan

Taiwan has received its first-ever official EU delegation amid ongoing tensions with China.

The thirteen-person EU Special Committee on Foreign Interference in all Democratic Processes (INGE) was composed of seven MEPs and six assistants.

The delegation has already met with Taiwan’s premier, Su Tseng-chang and will be meeting with President Tsai Ing-wen.

According to the EU Parliament, their visit was to learn from how Taiwan fights disinformation, attempts at interference in Taiwanese democracy, media, culture, and education, and cybersecurity.

“We in Europe are also confronted with interference from authoritarian regimes, and we came here to learn from you,” said Raphael Glucksmann, a French member of the European Parliament. 

The EU delegation visit took place after Taiwan’s Foreign Minister Joseph Wu visited Brussels, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia.
