Siew says trade visit to New York ‘meaningful’


WASHINGTON — Former Vice President Vincent Siew, who is heading a Taiwanese business delegation on a visit to the United States, called his two-day stay in New York “very meaningful.” “I of course hope the visit can help further strengthen Taiwan-U.S. trade relations and Taiwan’s participation in regional economic integration,” Siew said in response to a question from the media upon his arrival in Washington, D.C., the second stop on his trip.

“It was a great beginning … but there won’t be significant results after just one visit,” he said of his repeated appeals to business leaders from the two countries to create a CEO Summit that would serve as an institutionalized communication platform. Siew, who indicated he last visited Washington six years ago, said he was now looking forward to his four-day stay in the U.S. capital. While in Washington, D.C., Siew will give a keynote address at a public seminar hosted by the Brookings Institution that will examine Taiwan’s prospects for entry into the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the implications of its participation. In addition, the former vice president will meet three co-chairmen of the Congressional Taiwan Caucus, congressmen Mario Diaz-Balart (R-Florida), Albio Sires (D-New Jersey) and John Carter (R-Texas), and Steve Chabot, chairman of the Subcommittee on Asia and the Pacific under the House Committee on Foreign Affairs. Investment in the energy sector is likely to be one of the topics on the meeting’s agenda, especially with the boom in hydraulic fracturing in the U.S. changing the face of the energy industry. Members of the Taiwanese delegation include Hon Hai Group Chairman Terry Gou, Fubon Financial Holding Co. Chairman Daniel Tsai, Far Eastern Group Chairman Douglas Hsu, Adimmune Corp. Chairman Chan Chi-shean, Formosa Plastics Group Vice Chairwoman Susan Wang, and TECO Group Chairman Theodore Huang. The delegation will also visit San Francisco before returning to Taiwan on Nov. 27.
