The an­nual Tai­wan-U.S. Com­mer­cial Fo­rum will take place next week in the south­ern city of Kaoh­si­ung, dur­ing which of­fi­cials from the two coun­tries will dis­cuss bi­lat­eral com­mer­cial re­la­tions, said the Amer­i­can In­sti­tute in Tai­wan (AIT) Fri­day, which is co-or­ga­niz­ing the event.

The sev­enth Tai­wan-U.S. Com­mer­cial Fo­rum, co- or­ga­nized by AIT’s Kaoh­si­ung branch and Na­tional Ping­tung Uni­ver­sity, is slated for May 1, said the AIT, which rep­re­sents U.S. in­ter­ests in Tai­wan in the ab­sence of bi­lat­eral diplo­matic ties.

The goal of the fo­rum


to ad­dress de­vel­op­ments in U.S.Tai­wan com­mer­cial ties and prospects for in­vest­ment in Tai­wan and the United States, the AIT said.

Lau­rie Far­ris, ex­ec­u­tive direc­tor for Asia in the U.S. Depart­ment of Com­merce’s In­ter­na­tional Trade Ad­min­is­tra­tion, will de­liver a speech on com­mer­cial de­vel­op­ments re­lated to the two coun­tries, it added.

The event will also fea­ture two ex­pert pan­els and will be at­tended by sev­eral AIT and Tai­wanese of­fi­cials, the AIT said, adding that rep­re­sen­ta­tives from in­ter­na­tional non-profit or­ga­ni­za­tions and busi­nesses will also par­tic­i­pate.
