Latvian delegation arrived in Taipei only a few days after the historic handshake on November 7 between the President of the People's Republic of China Xi Jinping and the President of the Republic of China (Taiwan) Ma Ying-jeou which served as proof of opportunities for the cooperation between the two countries1. Latvia was represented by Agrita Kiopa and Maija Bundule from the Ministry of Education and Science as well as by Janis Klovins (Jānis Kloviņš), Head of the Latvian Biomedical Research and Study Centre and Ojars Sparitis (Ojārs Spārītis), President of the Latvian Academy of Sciences.
