China over a trade-in-goods agreement after a draft bill on the monitor of cross-Taiwan Strait pacts has cleared the legislative floor, according to an Executive Yuan report.

Premier Lin Chuan (林全) is scheduled to make his first administrative report to the legislators Tuesday, copies of which have been sent to the Legislative Yuan Friday.

The report pointed out that the Cabinet will seek a speedy approval of the bill on supervising cross-strait talks and agreements, based on which trade and economic officials will resume talks with their Chinese counterparts on the trade-in-goods pact that had been suspended in late November, 2015 after 12 rounds of negotiations.

The Cabinet will also seek the Legislature’s ratification of the trade-in-services pact signed with China in 2013, according to the report.      [FULL  STORY]
