TAIPEI/BRUSSELS -- Taiwanese Foreign Minister Joseph Wu visits Central Europe this week as Taipei and the European Union pursue closer political ties along with economic partnerships in areas such as semiconductors.

On his first trip to Europe since 2019, Wu is set to speak Tuesday at an international conference in Slovakia and meet with the president of the Czech Republic Senate, who went to Taiwan himself last summer.
