Taiwan committed to peace, Lai says to the U.S.-Taiwan Business Council delegation
Taiwan is committed to working with democratic countries to safeguard regional peace and stability, and it aims to join the U.S.-led Indo-Pacific Economic Framework (IPEF), president-elect William Lai told a U.S.-Taiwan Business Council delegation yesterday.
Lai told the delegation, led by former U.S. Under Secretary of State for Economic Growth, energy, and the Environment Keith Krach, Taiwan is pivotal in preserving peace and stability in the Indo-Pacific region. As president, he would seek to maintain the “status quo” in the Taiwan Strait.
Thanking the U.S. government for its strong support for Taiwan’s democracy, as shown in visits by high-level delegations after the Jan. 13 presidential and legislative elections, Lai said that Taiwan would work with the U.S. to open up for more bilateral investment and to establish a more predictable investment environment.
