Wilson will also meet with President Tsai and Premier Su Tseng-chang while he is in Taiwan. He will also hold a press conference during his visit, which is set to last until March 30th.
Wilson’s visit will also likely involve many discussions revolving around the World Movement for Democracy’s Global Assembly. The 11th assembly will be held this October in Taipei, from the 24th to the 27th. This will be the first time the event has been held in Taiwan.
