The mayor of Linyi in China’s Shandong Province will visit Taiwan for the first time on April 18 on a trip that will focus on bilateral agricultural exchanges and cooperation, according to the Taiwan Farm Products Agents Association (TFPAA).

Invited to Taiwan by the association, Linyi Mayor Zhang Shaojun will visit cities and counties in the Taipei, Changhua, Yunlin, Tainan, Kaohsiung, Taitung and Hualien areas, TFPAA Secretary-General Chang Yu-cheng said Tuesday.

Zhang will visit fruit and vegetable wholesale markets and agricultural biotech parks in those areas and call on the Taiwan Agriculture and Animal Industry Development Foundation to talk about possible cooperation between his city and Taiwan, Chang added.

Linyi, located in the southeastern part of Shandong, is the province’s largest city, with a population of more than 10 million.

It is known for being rich in mineral resources, including iron, titanium, copper, gold, silver and aluminum.

Its temperate climate and fertile land also make the city an agricultural base for wheat, peanuts, corn, cotton and soybeans.
