Taipei, July 11 (CNA) Hsiao Bi-khim (蕭美琴), Taiwan's representative-designate to the United States, has vowed to develop a trust-based partnership with the U.S. on many fronts, especially in the area of technology security.

The former legislator and National Security Council advisor was appointed as Taiwan's de facto ambassador to the U.S. in June and will become the first woman to hold the position when she takes it over by the end of this month.
