News Agency on Monday that he is working to raise his country’s profile and give it greater visibility among Taiwanese.

On his first visit to CNA since he took office last year, Reeves said in a meeting with CNA president Chang Jui-chang (張瑞昌) and Editor-in-Chief Jay Chen (陳正杰) that Canada and Taiwan have maintained close exchanges in terms of investment and trade, technology, and people-to-people ties.

The two-way exchanges have been deep-rooted for decades as there are around 60,000 Canadian passport holders in Taiwan and as many as 200,000 people of Taiwanese origin living in Canada, said Reeves, who took office in August 2018 as director of the Canadian Trade Office in Taipei (CTOT).

Canada is one of the countries that support Taiwan’s international participation in global organizations, he said. In addition, Taiwan is Canada’s 12th-largest trading partner and fifth-biggest in Asia, Reeves said.
