DPP chairwoman arrives in Los Angeles

Los Angeles, May 29 (CNA) Tsai Ing-wen (???), chairwoman of the opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), arrived in Los Angeles Friday on the first leg of a six-city U.S. tour in her capacity as the party's 2016 presidential candidate. Tsai was greeted by over 100 supporters at the airport. Tsai, who also visited Los Angeles during her 2012 presidential campaign, said she is more experienced and better-prepared this time than four years ago and that she believes her interactions with Taiwanese expatriates and various other sectors in the United States will produce better results. She said Los Angeles was chosen as the first leg of her tour because the city is home to the largest number of Taiwanese expatriates in the United States. She expressed her regards to the Taiwanese expatriates there and said she will report Taiwan's latest developments to them, adding that she believes her trip will be very successful. Tsai was scheduled to meet the following day with Taiwan-born U.S. Representative Ted Lieu and to hold a youth forum with Taiwanese students studying there. (By Oscar Wu and Y.F. Low)
