The United States and Taiwan launched the inaugural meeting of the U.S.-Taiwan Economic Prosperity Partnership (EPP) Dialogue in Washington, DC, on Friday, to further existing economic cooperation and forge new economic ties between the U.S. and Taiwan.
Both Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Taiwan Minister of Foreign Affairs Joseph Wu tweeted statements Saturday morning celebrating the launch of the dialogue.
“The United States and Taiwan are strong partners in defending freedom, advancing economic ties, and promoting our shared democratic values,” Pompeo wrote. “The American Institute in Taiwan Economic Prosperity Partnership Dialogue strengthens our economic relationship even further.”
Wu wrote in response, “@SecPompeo, thank you, I couldn’t have said it better myself. The #Taiwan–#US Economic Prosperity Partnership Dialogue is another great step forward in a relationship going from strength to strength.”
