Taipei, April 18 (CNA) Relations between Taiwan and the Philippines have moved up a notch as lawmakers from both sides formed a parliamentary association on Tuesday with the aim of boosting bilateral exchanges in various fields.

Democratic Progressive Party Legislator Wu Kuen-yuh (吳焜裕), who was elected chairman of the Taiwan-Philippines Congressional Association, said he hopes the association can push for more cooperation in trade, investment, agriculture and medicine.

Legislative Secretary-General Lin Chih-chia (林志嘉) also said during the inauguration ceremony that the association could play a key role in Taiwan-Philippine ties because the two countries do not have enough exchanges due to language barriers.
