President Tsai Ing-wen says she hopes Taiwan and the United States continue to strengthen trade ties after Donald Trump is sworn in on Friday. Tsai was speaking on Tuesday while meeting the chair of the US Taiwan Business Council, Paul Wolfowitz.
Tsai said the council has been an important and loyal partner to Taiwan. She expressed thanks for the council's long-term trade support. She said she hopes both sides will continue to strengthen trade after Trump becomes president on January 20.
Tsai said, I believe Taiwan-US economic growth is the crucial foundation for strengthening and stabilizing Taiwan-US trade. Together we will seek, create, and develop new trade opportunities.
Tsai said the US is Taiwan's most important trade partner and the two sides should work towards the next milestone in bilateral trade.
"Whether it is a bilateral free trade agreement or some other means of promoting economic integration, we hope that through better and more negotiations and discussions, we can create a better investment and trade environment. We hope that the US Taiwan Business Council will continue to support and assist in this regard, " said Tsai.
