Senior DPP official to visit U.S. soon after presidential election

Washington, Jan. 5 (CNA) Joseph Wu, secretary-general of Taiwan's main opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), is scheduled to visit the United States later this month to give a speech on the implications of the results of Taiwan's Jan. 16 presidential election, the organizers said earlier this week.

Wu, also the DPP's representative to the U.S., will deliver the speech Jan. 19 in Washington at the invitation of two U.S. think tanks -- the Brookings Institution and the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

He will focus on the implications of the results of the three-way election, which will be held Jan. 16, and will also meet with U.S. officials.

The DPP said it maintains regular communication with Washington and that Wu's visit to the U.S. is a routine one.

Wu has made several visits to the U.S. to meet with U.S. administration officials, congressmen and think tank experts and talk about his party's policies.

He is scheduled to arrive in Washington on Jan. 18 and return to Taiwan on Jan. 22.

Taiwanese voters will go to the polls on Jan. 16 to elect the country's next president and a new Legislature. The results of the elections are expected to be a hot topic among think tank experts in Washington.
