Taipei-Taiwan will seek to strengthen its economic cooperation with the United States, based on the current foundation, President Tsai Ing-wen (???) said Tuesday.
Tsai made the remarks in a meeting at the Presidential Office with U.S.-Taiwan Business Council Chairman Paul Wolfowitz, who is leading a delegation of American business executives on visit to Taipei this week.
Noting that the meeting was taking place just days before the Jan. 20 inauguration of U.S. President-elect Donald Trump, Tsai said Taiwan will seek to strengthen bilateral economic and trade relations based on the solid foundation the two sides have built.
Taiwan will remain one of the most important, reliable and trustworthy partners of the U.S., she said, adding that the U.S.-Taiwan Business Council has been an important partner in the promotion of business relations between the two countries.
The U.S. and Taiwan have long-standing friendly relations and share common interests and values, Tsai said.
Meanwhile, Wolfowitz's delegation, which is on a visit to Taipei to promote trade and business relations with Taiwan, said it will do whatever it can to help with Taiwan's goals of economic reform and trade liberalization.\
