Premier William Lai is calling on Japan to strengthen industry cooperation with Taiwan. His remarks came Monday at the opening ceremony of the 32nd Sino-Japanese Modern Engineering and Technology Symposium.
With Japan's technology and experience and Taiwan's facilities and other advantages, Lai said the two sides should join forces to make inroads into the countries targeted by the Taiwan government's New Southbound Policy. President Tsai Ing-wen's administration introduced the policy after she took office last May. It aims to strengthen Taiwan's trade and cultural ties with Southeast Asia, South Asia, Australia and New Zealand.
Lai spoke on Monday about why cooperation would be beneficial for both sides. I think today's meeting can move towards that direction," said Lai. "The [cooperation] will not only produce results for Taiwan and Japan, it will also [help us enter] markets in Southeast Asia and our neighboring countries. I believe it is a good move which can help us carry out President Tsai Ing-wen's New Southbound Policy.
Japan's representative to Taiwan, Mikio Numata, who is the head of the Japan-Taiwan Exchange Association, has voiced support for Lai's remarks.
