Taipei, Taiwan – Today, House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Michael McCaul landed in Taipei, Taiwan with a bipartisan congressional delegation to meet with the newly inaugurated Taiwan administration. The bipartisan delegation includes Rep. Jimmy Panetta (D-CA), Subcommittee on the Indo-Pacific Chairwoman Young Kim (R-CA), Subcommittee on Middle East, North Africa, and Central Asia Chairman Joe Wilson (R-SC), Rep. Chrissy Houlahan (D-PA), and Rep. Andy Barr (R-KY). While there, the delegation will meet with Taiwanese authorities to discuss regional security, trade, and investment to explore new areas of collaboration between the United States and Taiwan. 

“As Putin wages war in Ukraine and Israel fights a multi-front war against Iran-backed proxies like Hamas, Chairman Xi is watching to see if America continues to support its partners and friends,” said Chairman McCaul. “Taiwan is a thriving democracy. The U.S. will continue to stand by our steadfast partner and work to maintain the status quo across the Taiwan Strait. I look forward to meeting with Taiwan officials to better understand what America can do to preserve peace in Asia and build upon our shared democratic values.”
