U.S. Support for Taiwan's Accession to WTO

PR0110E | Date: 2001-03-29

We are pleased that the Ministry of Economic Affairs and the Council of Agriculture in TECRO-AIT talks last week agreed to continue to fulfill Taiwan's pre-WTO accession commitments concerning meat import quotas. We believe that the agreement is fair for Taiwan and U.S. farmers and provides substantial benefits to Taiwan consumers.

The U.S. continues to strongly support Taiwan's accession to the World Trade Organization. The final decision regarding Taiwan's accession to the WTO will be made by consensus among all contracting parties.
