Swedish lawmaker eyes more exchanges with Taiwan

Visiting Swedish parliamentarian Mathias Tegnér said he looks forward to seeing more exchanges between Taiwan and Sweden, during a meeting with President Tsai Ing-wen in Taipei Wednesday, August 23. The Swedish lawmaker is eyeing to strengthen collaboration within trade and technology.

“Taiwan and Sweden will benefit from deeper cooperation and increased trade,” Tegnér said while meeting with Tsai at the Presidential Office.
