Taipei, Feb. 19 (CNA) A bipartisan American congressional delegation arrived in Taiwan on Sunday for a five-day visit, during which they will meet with President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) and other senior government officials, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA).

Upon arrival at Taoyuan International Airport, the four members of Congress were welcomed by Douglas Hsu (徐佑典), head of MOFA's North American Affairs Department, according to the press statement.
During their five-day visit to Taiwan, the Congress members will meet with President Tsai and senior government officials to discuss ways of enhancing security cooperation and the economic and trade ties between Taiwan and the U.S., MOFA said.
