El Salvador is one of the Republic of China’s (Taiwan’s) diplomatic allies in the region. The two countries have maintained diplomatic relations for over 70 years since 1941.

Tawanese President Tsai Ing-wen visited the small Central American nation as part of her four-nation tour to Central America in January and met its President Salvador Sanchez Ceren, during which she described the nation as an important friend to Taiwan.

Many from Taiwan, mainland China as well as the United States will recall that trip abroad due to Beijing’s complaints over the fact that Tsai was “visiting the United States” – because Tsai used U.S. airports for connecting flights.

In her speech welcoming the guests, Tsai said El Salvador is an important ally of Taiwan, and her visit in January highlighted the cordiality existing between the two nations. She said plans are underway to form a business delegation to visit Central America, with El Salvador being the first stop, adding that she expects the two countries to work together to create an attractive environment for investment on both sides. During the visit, Gallegos is also scheduled to visit Legislative Yuan and meet with his counterpart, Legislative Speaker Su Jia-chyuan.
