Berlin, Sept. 2 (CNA) Lai Shin-yuan, head of the Cabinet-level Mainland Affairs Council (MAC), is visiting Europe to meet with European Union officials and think tank scholars.

Lai, accompanied by several MAC officials, arrived in Vienna Sunday for a transit stop on her way to Brussels.

Chen Lien-gene, Taiwan's representative to Austria, greeted Lai at the Vienna airport.

During her stay in Brussels, Lai will meet with leading Belgian and EU political figures, said Shih Hsiao-chuan, an MAC secretary who is accompanying Lai on her current visit.

Lai will also travel to London to attend an international seminar on cross-Taiwan Strait relations in the era of globalization. The seminar will be organized by the University of London's School of Oriental and African Studies.
