Taipei, Oct. 8 (CNA) Sir Tapley Seaton, governor-general of the Caribbean nation of St. Kitts and Nevis, arrived in Taiwan on Monday to attend the Republic of China (Taiwan) National Day celebrations on Wednesday.

During Seaton's five-day visit, he will attend banquets hosted by President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) and Foreign Minister Joseph Wu (吳釗燮), respectively, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA).

Seaton is also scheduled to visit the International Cooperation and Development Fund (TaiwanICDF) in Taipei, a government-funded agency responsible for national foreign aid programs.

Apart from his official visits, Seaton will also engage in cultural activities, including tours of the National Palace Museum, Taipei 101 Building, and National Taichung Theater, among other places of interest, MOFA said in a statement.

Taiwan and St. Kitts and Nevis established diplomatic relations in October 1983, less than a month after the Caribbean country gained independence from Britain, according to MOFA.
