Taipei, April 21 (CNA) Haiti's President Michel Joseph Martelly arrived in Taiwan Monday for a four-day state visit, during which the two countries are set to sign a joint communique and a new agreement, Taiwan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that day. Martelly is heading a 30-member delegation from the Caribbean country that includes Minister of Foreign Affairs Duly Brutus, Minister of Commerce and Industry Wilson Laleau, and Minster of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Rural Development Thomas Jacques, the ministry said. The delegation is scheduled to attend a briefing on Taiwan's political and economic environment, see the National Palace Museum -- home to priceless artifacts from imperial China -- and pay a visit to Haiti's embassy in Taiwan later in the day, the ministry said. This is Martelly's first visit to Taiwan since he assumed office as president in 2011. On Tuesday, he will meet with President Ma Ying-jeou, and the two leaders will sign a joint communique on promoting bilateral ties, Taiwanese foreign affairs officials said. Taiwan's Foreign Minister David Lin will meet with his Haitian counterpart on Tuesday to sign an agreement on increasing local rice production in Haiti, the officials said. (By Elaine Hou)
