Taiwan is ramping up efforts to promote regional economic integration in the
Asia-Pacific while furthering advances in people-to-people connectivity and inclusive growth, according to Minister of Economic Affairs Deng Chen-chung Nov. 17.
Deng, who was in the Philippines for the 2015 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Ministerial Meeting, said Taiwan is moving toward its goal of joining the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the largest trade liberalization pact in the region. He added the bid has been met with positive responses from the 12 nations that have reached agreement on the TPP. The 12 economies are all members of APEC.
