Taipei, April 12 (CNA) U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State David Meale told
President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) Friday that the United States looks forward to deepening its economic relations with Taiwan.
During their meeting at the Presidential Office, Meale said the U.S. government is focused on promoting a free and open Indo-Pacific strategy that enables its private sector and economies throughout the region to engage in meaningful economic interactions.
He also thanked Taiwan for its support of the U.S. Indo-Pacific strategy, while noting that there is a lot for the two sides to discuss about “how to move forward on unleashing the power of the private sector from western India to the western United States.”
“Obviously, we have much to build upon in terms of the enduring nature of our economic relationship and moving forward together to deepen its potential,” he added.
