Taipei, Jan. 5 (CNA) A Vietnamese language section has been added to
Taiwan's New Southbound Policy (NSP) Portal to strengthen the delivery of
information related to the policy to boost ties with Vietnam, the Ministry
of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) said Friday.

The portal brings together news about Taiwan's government policies and
media reports related to the push to develop closer trade and other ties
with the NSP target countries.

The platform also links to the websites of the representative offices of
the target countries covered by the policy, bringing to users news about
the countries' development, as well as local happenings and consular

The NSP Portal originally had Chinese and English versions only.

As part of ongoing government efforts to raise regional awareness of the
NSP, an Indonesian language version of the New Southbound Policy Portal (
http://nspp.mofa.gov.tw/nsppid) was launched on Nov. 28 and the Vietnamese
language section (http://nspp.mofa.gov.tw/nsppvn) was set up on Friday,
MOFA said.

Since 2016, the government has been actively promoting the New Southbound
Policy, which is aimed at strengthening the relationship between Taiwan and
policy's 18 target countries, including the 10 countries in the Association
of Southeast Asian Nations, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal,
Bhutan, New Zealand and Australia.
