Prague Mayor Zdenek Hrib and Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je signed the Prague-Taipei partnership agreement on economic, trade and cultural cooperation between the Czech and Taiwanese capital cities today. "The friendship between Taipei and Prague began many years ago," Hrib said before the signing. Until now, the Prague-Taipei cooperation was based on a memorandum from 2001. The planned partnership agreement was negotiated during Hrib's visit to Taiwan in March 2019. The Prague Assembly approved the plan last autumn. Ko Wen-je said Hrib showed by his last year visit to Taipei that he supported Taiwan.
