Economics Minister Lee Chih-kuang says there are no plans for a shake-up in the team that maintains the cross-strait Economic Cooperation Framework Agreement (ECFA).
Taiwanese media reports indicated that the economics ministry had disbanded the team and reassigned its members to the foreign trade bureau. On Wednesday, Lee dismissed the reports, saying that the team had been under the direction of the trade bureau to begin with.
Asked about whether ECFA will be scrapped, Lee said the future of the trade framework will remain unclear until legislation covering cross-strait agreements passes.
The foreign trade bureau says its Mainland China team will take care of cross-strait trade affairs in the interim.
