Taiwan's diplomatic ally Tuvalu will open an embassy in the capital, Taipei, this week.
Island Business says Tuvalu's Prime Minister Willy Telavi and the ambassador to Taiwan, Minute Taupo, will co-host the embassy's opening ceremony in Taipei on March the 14th.
The embassy's office will be located in the Taipei World Trade Center's International Trade Building.
A Taiwanese official says they believe the launch of the embassy will bring closer bilateral ties.
Tuvalu is one of Taiwan's 23 diplomatic allies.
