• Taiwan eyes expanded regional economic exchanges


    Taiwan is determined to play a significant role in regional economic integration and is committed to trade liberalization, Minister of Economic Affairs Duh Tyzz-jiun said on Thursday. “The government will continue strengthening Taiwan’s bilateral ties with its Asia-Pacific partners and stepping up efforts to seek expanded trade collaboration,” he said. Taiwan has made significant headway in signing trade pacts since President Ma Ying-jeou took office in May 2008, like the Cross-Straits Economic Cooperation Framework Agreement (ECFA) in 2010, an investment protection pact with Japan in 2011, and trade agreements with New Zealand and Singapore last year.
