On November 13, at the Regent Taipei in Taiwan, Governor Takeshi Onaga hosted an event, “Okinawa Night”, for Taiwanese business leaders and administrative officials who have contributed to Okinawa tourism.
About 140 representatives of leading companies in Taiwan, including Chairman Chiang Pin-kung of The Third Wednesday Club (San San Fe), took part in the event.
The Okinawa Prefectural Government created a festival mood at the venue by putting up posters in prominent positions to promote Okinawa tourism and products and by setting up a display of products.
“We held the event ‘Okinawa Night’ in Taipei in order to strengthen ties between Taiwan and Okinawa. This was the first time for such an event in our overseas markets and we would like to promote further exchanges with Taiwan,” Governor Onaga said in his speech.
Chairman Chiang Pin-kung stated, “Taiwan and Okinawa have close ties. We expect to promote not only tourism with each other but also investments.”
The Okinawan delegation led by Governor Onaga visited the offices of Star Cruises, TransAsia Airways, Peach Aviation, Eva Airways and Mandarin Airlines, which operate lines between Taiwan and Okinawa.
