TAIPEI, Nov 20 — Taiwan’s presidential frontrunner Vice President Lai Ching-te said today he had picked the island’s former envoy to the United States as his running mate in January’s election.

Hsiao Bi-khim, 52, has been Taipei’s de facto ambassador to the United States since 2020, and is widely regarded as a well-connected and savvy diplomat navigating the geopolitical tensions between Washington and Beijing.

Lai said in a post that she has “facilitated unprecedented close interactions in Taiwan-US relations in the past few years”.

“I believe that Bi-khim is definitely a leader in Taiwan’s diplomatic work today and a rare diplomatic talent in our country,” he said.

“I am confident that together with Bi-khim, we will succeed in the final 50 days to unite the consensus of the people and unite all forces to win the election, and allow Taiwan to continue to grow on a steady path forward.”

Taiwan’s foreign ministry also announced that it had accepted Bi-khim’s resignation as the representative to Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office (TECRO) in Washington.

Hsiao, who China regards as an “independence diehard”, has previously been sanctioned twice by Beijing.
