The Council of Agriculture says that Taiwan has not lifted a ban on US pork imports. Agriculture official Chen Ji-chung was responding to questions about a recent comment from Chiayi County Chief Chang Hwa-Kuan.

After US President Donald Trump came to office, Chang traveled with a Taiwan government delegation to the US to congratulate the new administration. During that trip, the county chief told US officials that she had held many public hearings about US pork imports, and that farmers in her county are ready to deal with the possible impact if the ban is lifted.

A reporter later asked agriculture official Chen Ji-chung why the county chief would make the comment if there were no plan to lift the ban.    [FULL  STORY]
