Tokyo, April 7 (CNA) Taiwan’s Legislative Speaker Wang Jin-pyng (王金平) called during a visit to Japanese politicians Tuesday for Japanese support for Taiwan’s bids for access to two proposed regional economic blocs — the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP).
Wang also voiced hope that an economic partnership agreement between Taiwan and Japan can be signed as soon as possible, saying that all these measures will help boost trade between the two countries.
Fair treatment for Taiwan in international society will not just help Taiwan’s economic development but will also benefit trade between Taiwan and Japan, which will indirectly boost Japan’s trade and economic growth, Wang said while addressing a luncheon hosted by Tadashi Imai, president of the Interchange Association.
