TAIPEI (TVBS News) — A representative office of a European Union country in Taiwan has established a contingency plan due to concerns about heightened tension across the Taiwan Strait, according to reports. 

Details of the contingency plan include safe transportation to the airport for European citizens and communication channels to contact nationals and their family members in Taiwan.

 

In response to media inquiries, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) dismissed the report on Sunday, saying no European country had recently executed an evacuation plan.

In the past six months, countries such as Japan, the Philippines, and Indonesia have already created evacuation plans to safeguard their nationals in Taiwan.

During the weekend's annual Europe Day Festival, some European residents living in Taiwan said they were unaware of the plan.
 

One participant said: "I know there would be a plan, and there would be action items to take, so I don't worry about it too much." At the same time, another believed that "the representative office is probably doing enough to inform its citizens."

In related news, the British Office in Taipei has announced an increase in its workforce from 33 staff to 50, with the number of British expatriates in Taiwan increasing from 6 to 11.

The decision reflects the growing interaction and collaboration between the United Kingdom and Taiwan.

Although each country has differing views and plans regarding cross-strait issues, there is common ground in closely monitoring the relationship between Taiwan and China.
