| March 11, 2019

On 28 February, Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen met with a delegation led by Cardinal Fernando Filoni, Prefect of the Vatican’s Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples.

President Tsai said that Taiwan and the Vatican share the common values of freedom, human rights, and benevolence. In the future, Taiwan will continue to partner with the Holy See in humanitarian and charitable work, contributing even more to the world.  President Tsai noted that from the past to the present, Catholics have been an important force contributing to the common good in Taiwanese society.

One example is this year’s National Eucharistic Congress held by the Catholic Church in Taiwan.  President Tsai said that different religions coexist peacefully in Taiwan, a spirit of mutual respect that has been recognized by the Holy See. The Vatican and Taiwan have jointly held a number of interfaith conferences. She also expressed hope that Cardinal Filoni’s visit would help promote further understanding between Taiwan and the Vatican.
