President Tsai hopes to see more liberalized trade with U.S.
Taipei, May 17 (CNA) President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) said Wednesday that she hopes the United States Congress will continue to support arms sales to Taiwan and that the relations between the two sides will include further trade liberalization.
Tsai made the comments in a closed door meeting with a delegation from the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission (USCC), according to a press release issued by the Presidential Office.
In addition to arms sales and U.S.-Taiwan trade relations, other issues discussed in the meeting included cross-Taiwan Strait ties, Tsai's New Southward Policy, China's "One Belt, One Road" initiative, the high-tech industry and energy resources, the Presidential Office said.
The U.S. delegation was headed by USCC Commissioner Carolyn Bartholomew, while the Taiwan officials at the meeting included National Security Council Secretary General Joseph Wu (吳釗燮) and Deputy Foreign Minister Chang Wen-liang (章文樑).
The USCC was created by the United States Congress in October 2000 with the legislative mandate to monitor, investigate, and submit to Congress an annual report on the national security implications of the bilateral trade and economic relationship between the U.S. and the People's Republic of China.
It was also mandated to provide recommendations, where appropriate, to Congress for legislative and administrative action.
