Talks concerning the Trade and Investment Framework Agreement (TIFA) between Taiwan and the United States are set to take place in October. The news was confirmed by foreign ministry official Christine Hsueh on Thursday.
Hsueh said US pork imports into Taiwan have been a matter of concern between the two sides.
“In the past, the talks have always taken place around the latter half of the year, around October. Of course bilateral talks like these depend on the schedule of both sides. We will make an announcement when we’re certain of the time,” Hsueh said. “Pork imports is an ongoing topic, and one both sides are paying attention to. It will be an ongoing discussion and we hope we can move forward on the matter.”
