President Tsai Ing-wen said Aug. 3 that Taiwan and the U.K. should prioritize
concluding a free trade or bilateral investment agreement so as to create more win-win opportunities and inject fresh impetus into the economies of both sides.
Over the past year, Taiwan and the U.K. have laid the foundation for such cooperation through increasingly frequent exchanges by high-level officials and lawmakers in areas like industrial development and municipal governance, Tsai said. It is important to maintain this momentum and keep relations going from strength to strength, she added.
Tsai made the remarks while receiving an 11-member delegation from the British-Taiwanese All-Party Parliamentary Group at the Office of the President in Taipei City. Led by group vice chairman and Tory member of parliament Andrew Rosindell, the delegation is in Taiwan July 30 to Aug. 5 on a cultural, economic, political and cross-strait fact-finding visit.
