MOEA requests WTO to act on China's actions
Government ministries say Taiwan has raised multiple requests with the World Trade Organization to speak against China's actions.
Officials from the Ministry of Economic Affairs, the Ministry of Health and Welfare, and the Council of Agriculture spoke about the government's reaction to Beijing's move to ban more imports from Taiwan earlier this month.
The bans now include several alcohol and beverage products, coming after restrictions on numerous seafood products days earlier.
The economics ministry says from 2010 to November this year, Taiwan has moved to raise trade concerns against China a total of 9 times.
The ministry says the US, Japan, and EU have also called for China to follow the WTO's Agreement on Technical Barriers to Trade, which "aims to ensure that technical regulations, standards, and conformity assessment procedures are non-discriminatory and do not create unnecessary obstacles to trade".
