Taiwanese government bodies and Canada's representative office in Taipei issued a joint statement on Wednesday during a virtual event about their intention to forge a partnership involving educational institutions from the two countries on bilingual education cooperation.
The joint statement was issued by Taiwan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) and Ministry of Education, and the Canadian Trade Office in Taipei after an online presentation about a proposed dual recognition scheme of certificates from high schools from Taiwan and Canada, MOFA said in a press release issued Wednesday.
The joint statement marks the first stride forward towards deepening bilateral cooperation in bilingual education, said Douglas Hsu (???), head of MOFA's North American Affairs Department.
Hsu said that he was pleased to see government officials and school representatives from Taiwan and Canada attend the online explanation session and display a high degree of interest in cooperation.
