Taiwan and UK sign trade partnership agreement
Representatives from Taiwan and the UK have signed an agreement to enhance bilateral trade ties. The "Enhanced Trade Partnership" deal was signed by Taiwan's top envoy to the UK Kelly Hsieh, and John Dennis, head of the British Office Taipei via teleconference.
The office says trade talks between the two sides are expected to focus on digital trade, investment, renewable energy and net-zero technology, as well as other shared topics of interest.
Taiwan's top trade negotiator John Deng says the agreement is Taiwan's first enhanced economic and trade framework with a European country and he expects that to be a precursor to other trade relationships built in the region.
Deputy Economics Minister CC Chen was in London earlier this week to attend the 26th UK-Taiwan Trade Talks.
