The annual Taiwan-U.K. consultation on economics and trade wrapped up Dec. 1 in London, with the two
sides pledging to expand collaboration across the board, the Ministry of Economic Affairs said.
During the one-day meeting convened by MOEA Vice Minister Wang Mei-hua and British Minister of State for International Trade Greg Hands, the two sides discussed issues spanning such areas as financial services, intellectual property rights protection, medical technology evaluation and renewable energy.
According to Wang, Taiwan and the U.K. agreed to discuss ways to further strengthen ties and committed to establishing new platforms for deepening cooperation on agriculture and energy starting from the next consultation.
Hands said the U.K. attaches great importance to expanding exchanges with Taiwan’s vibrant economy, adding that its open consumer market offers significant opportunities for British businesses as his country prepares to leave the EU. [FULL STORY]
