Vincent Siew to attend APEC summit as Ma Ying-jeou's envoy

Taipei, Oct. 8 (CNA) President Ma Ying-jeou has named former Vice President Vincent Siew as his envoy to attend the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) leaders' summit in Beijing, Ma Wei-kuo, the spokeswoman for the Presidential Office said Wednesday. Ma Ying-jeou had hoped to become Taiwan's first president to attend the APEC summit and hold a historic meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping, but the announcement that Siew would attend the summit in November confirmed that those hopes have been dashed.
