Letter: Bilateral Trade with Taiwan

Today, ALEC Action released a letter signed by 215 state lawmakers representing 39 states urging the Biden Administration to prioritize negotiations on a US-Taiwan Bilateral Trade Agreement (BTA).

America’s economic partnership with Taiwan is a job creation engine – 373,000 jobs in the US were supported by bilateral trade between our two democracies in 2019 – and the US is Taiwan’s second largest import market and the third largest provider of energy to the island nation.
