Susan Walsh/Pool via REUTERS/File PhotoUnited States Trade Representative Katherine Tai discussed trade and investment issues with Taiwan minister John Deng on Thursday and agreed to convene a meeting of the countries' Trade And Investment Framework Agreement Council "in coming weeks", Tai's office said in a statement. "Ambassador Tai emphasized the importance of the U.S.-Taiwan trade and investment relationship and explained the Biden-Harris administration's worker-centered trade priorities," USTR said. Taiwan has long angled for a free trade deal with the United States, but trade and investment talks between the two have been stalled since the Obama administration. The outcome could affect trade talks with Washington.

Trade Representative Katherine Tai plans to speak with her Taiwanese counterpart as early as Thursday as the two governments move to restart trade and investment talks that were suspended during the Trump administration, people familiar with the discussion said Wednesday. The Trade and Investment Framework Agreement talks date back to the 1990s. The talks were discontinued under the Trump administration’s trade representative, Robert Lighthizer, who considered Taiwan a mercantilist country that blocked U.S. imports. A spokesman for Taiwan’s representative in the U.S. didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. A USTR spokesman declined comment on discussions between Ms. Tai and Taiwan’s John Deng.

TAIPEI (Reuters) - Taiwan is under no illusions it can quickly sign a long hoped for free trade deal with the United States but feels when the time is right “success will flow naturally”, the island’s chief trade negotiator said on Friday.

REUTERS/Tyrone SiuTaiwan has long sought a bilateral trade deal with the United States, the Chinese-claimed island’s most important international backer and supplier of arms. While Taiwan is a member of the World Trade Organization, many countries are wary of signing trade deals with the tech-powerhouse fearing objections from China, though Taiwan does have free trade deals with Singapore and New Zealand. President Tsai Ing-wen told Britain’s newly appointed de facto ambassador in Taipei this week she hoped they could begin talks on a free trade or bilateral investment agreement.
