Taiwan urges start of trade talks with EU

The Taiwanese government urged on Friday the European Union to start the "pre-negotiation work of impact assessment, public consultation and scope definition for the bilateral investment agreement" with the island.

"As an EU like-minded partner with core values ​​such as democracy, freedom, human rights, and the rule of law, Taiwan will continue to strengthen cooperation in semiconductor and other related strategic industries, digital economy, green supply chain restructuring energy, and the economic recovery after the [COVID-19] pandemic," Taipeh said.

The news comes shortly after Beijing warned the United States and its allies to stop "elevating" their relations with Taiwan and respect China's sovereignty.
