TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Hsiao Bi-khim (蕭美琴), Taiwan’s new envoy to the U.S., has stated that her primary goal will be to expand bilateral economic and trade cooperation as well as maintain Taiwan's overall national security.

Having only arrived in the U.S. 10 days ago, Hsiao talked to Chinese language media on Monday (August 3) at the Taiwanese-owned Twin Oaks Estate in Washington D.C., CNA reported.

She confessed that a major obstacle to inking a Taiwan-US bilateral trade agreement is the fact that the Taiwanese government still regulates specific agricultural products. Nevertheless, Hsiao pledged to continue negotiations with the U.S.

Hsiao also said that the global strategic situation is changing rapidly, and it is necessary to find a way for Taiwan to avoid unnecessary conflict.    [FULL  STORY]
