TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Two D.C. area think tanks are urging the Trump administration to move forward with negotiations for a Free Trade Agreement between the U.S. and Taiwan.
On Feb. 14, the Project 2049 Institute published a new report by Dan Blumenthal and Mike Mazza entitled “A Golden Opportunity for a U.S.-Taiwan Free Trade Agreement,” with the American Enterprise Institute publishing the same report a day later.
The preface declares that “Taiwan should be considered a crucial partner in the Trump administration’s strategy” of establishing a free and open Indo-Pacific, as the world moves into a new informational age.
Urging more economic openness and closer cooperation, the authors state that a Taiwan Free Trade Agreement would likewise bolster the U.S.’ national security strategy.
