The president will also make a stopover in New York prior to arriving in Guatemala and another in Los Angeles on her way back to Taiwan.

This will be Tsai’s eighth official trip abroad since taking office in 2016. She is to be accompanied by a delegation of government officials and legislators, including minister of foreign affairs Jaushieh Joseph Wu, PO secretary-general Lin Chia-lung, minister of overseas community affairs council Hsu Chia-ching and deputy minister of economic affairs Chen Chern-chyi.
