Japanese lawmaker Masamune Wada to visit Taiwan

Taipei, Jan. 30 (CNA) A Japanese lawmaker is scheduled to visit Taiwan later this week to learn more about the country's agricultural product promotion, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said Thursday. Masamune Wada, a member of Japan's House of Councilors, will arrive Saturday on a three-day visit, during which he will travel to Chiayi and Tainan in southern Taiwan, the ministry said in a statement. In those areas, he will study how the local farmers' associations promote and maintain the quality of their agricultural products, the ministry said. Wada, 40, was a news anchor at Japan's public broadcaster NHK before he was elected to the House of Councilors, the upper house of the National Diet of Japan, in 2013. Since then, the Japanese lawmaker has visited Taiwan twice to attend the country's National Day celebrations, the ministry said. (By Elaine Hou)
