President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) yesterday said her administration is willing to work
with China at next month’s APEC summit.
Tsai made the remarks at a news conference at the Presidential Office with People First Party Chairman James Soong (宋楚瑜), whom she named the nation’s chief delegate to the summit.
The nation’s APEC delegation would conduct exchanges with foreign leaders and heads of state to further Taiwan’s economic relations with its trade partners, Tsai said.
“We are also willing to interact with China on the basis of goodwill under the APEC framework,” she said.
This year’s APEC summit is scheduled on Nov. 11 to Nov. 12 in Da Nang, Vietnam.
Soong was also the nation’s chief delegate at last year’s APEC summit in Peru.
