During the trip, Prime Minister Allen Chastanet received full military honors and was the guest of honor at a state banquet hosted by President Tsai Ing-wen.
The delegation also met with Legislative Yuan President Su Jia-chyuan, National Security Council Secretary-General David Tawei Lee, Minister of Economic Affairs Shen Jong-chin, Minister of the Council of Agriculture Lin Tsung-Hsien and other senior officials.

In addition, the delegation visited the Taoyuan District Agricultural Research and Extension Station and the Institute for Information Industry. It also met with Saint Lucian students and the Ambassador and staff of the Saint Lucian Embassy in Taiwan. Arrangements were made for them to meet with investors from Taiwan interested in Saint Lucia’s business potential and strategic location.
The Saint Lucian delegation included Minister for Economic Development Guy Joseph; Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Finance, Economic Growth, Job Creation, External Affairs and Public Service Cointha Thomas; and Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Economic Development, Housing, Urban Renewal, Transport and Civil Aviation Philip Dalsou.
