TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Foreign Minister Joseph Wu (吳釗燮) is scheduled to deliver a speech later this month in Los Angeles, U.S. on Taiwan’s role in the Indo-Pacific region.

Wu is invited by the non-profit organization the Los Angeles World Affairs Council (LAWAC) to deliver an address under the title of “Taiwan: An Enduring Partner with the US in the Free and Open Indo-Pacific” at a luncheon on Mar. 11, said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs via a press statement released on Wednesday.

Wu will discuss Taiwan’s potential role in the U.S. Indo-Pacific strategy and the current situation of the Taiwan-U.S. partnership, among other issues in relation to both countries, according to LAWAC.

Established in 1953, LAWAC is a non-partisan and non-profit organization dedicated to promoting exchanges between American people and the wider world, said the ministry. The council has hosted speeches for eight U.S. presidents and more than 250 foreign heads of state and government over the years.
