Deputy Minister of Economic Affairs Chen Chern-chyi (陳正祺) held virtual discussions with Mitchell Silk, U.S. Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for International Markets, to discuss potential infrastructure investments in America and Southeast Asia, the MOEA said in a Facebook post.
The meeting took place under a cooperation agreement the two sides signed in September to identify and establish markets for infrastructure and energy in their respective regions, the ministry said.
Chen, who arrived in the U.S. on Monday, will participate in the first-ever Taiwan-U.S. Economic Prosperity Partnership on Friday and is expected to sign a memorandum of understanding on bilateral economic cooperation. [FULL STORY]
