US-Taiwan Free Trade Agreement Coalition

The US-Taiwan Business Council is currently gauging community interest in a US-Taiwan Free Trade Agreement Business Coalition.

Participants would consist of companies, trade associations, and other business organizations interested in constructing a broad base of support for a US-Taiwan FTA - in all regions of the United States and Taiwan, and from all sectors of the economy. The Council believes that a Coalition is the ideal mechanism for binding together all entities interested in supporting this worthwhile cause.

Corporate and organization support for the Business Coalition would span from a simple written statement indicating that a company or organization is supportive of the effort, to in-kind or financial support of activities and programming undertaken pursuant to the goal.

The US-Taiwan Business Council has asked interested parties to respond in writing if you would be supportive of this effort - at any level.

Contact the US-Taiwan Business Council via this web form to express your support.
