British Representative to Taiwan, John Dennis, and Taiwan’s Representative to the UK, Kelly Hsieh, have signed an Enhanced Trade Partnership (ETP) Arrangement, which sets out the UK and Taiwan’s priorities for future ETP discussions under three key areas: two-way investment, digital trade, and energy and net-zero.
The ETP, previously announced in July, will build on the annual UK-Taiwan trade talks to tackle barriers to trade and promote UK expertise, and deepen the bilateral relationship to take advantage of increasing commercial opportunities. According to the British Office Taipei, both sides will begin engaging on the ETP in due course.
