Jerusalem, Nov. 21 (CNA) Taiwan's representative to Israel, Chang Liang-jen, will be transferred to Indonesia to serve as the head of the Taipei Economic and Trade Office there, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) said Friday. Both positions are de facto ambassadorships but the title of ambassador is used only internally because of a lack of diplomatic ties with the host countries.

The ministry praised Chang, who has been posted in Israel since January 2010, for promoting bilateral relations. He has overseen five agreements between the two countries covering visa exemption, aviation, youth exchange, and cooperation in water resources and small- and medium-sized businesses. Chang has previously served as Taiwan's representative to Hong Kong, vice minister of the Mainland Affairs Council and deputy defense minister. (By Kuo Shu-fong and Lilian Wu)
