Taipei (CNA) — Taiwan can count on the United States' "unwavering commitment to our future together," whileChina is cause for concern, Brent Christensen, director of the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT), said Tuesday at a forum in Taipei.
"The United States has serious concerns about China's market distorting subsidies, threats, theft of intellectual property, and lack of a market oriented approach," Christensen said at the Indo-Pacific economic forum.
In contrast, Taiwan' close collaboration with the U.S. proves it is a model for the kind of partnership the U.S. is seeking in the region, he said.
