Major Taiwanese news network Liberty Times Network (LTN) recently reported that, in the afternoon, after U.S. Vice President Pence made a speech to the full conference at APEC, Morris Chang, the Taiwanese representative to APEC, had a high-profile bilateral dialogue with him. This meeting became the highest ranking public official meeting in the history of the US-Taiwan relationship. The conversation focused on the world economy and trade topics. Pence mentioned after the meeting that he will bring back Chang’s suggestion of establishing a US-Taiwan free trade agreement to Present Trump. There have been rumors of a meeting between Chinese President Xi and U.S. Vice President Pence. However, that didn’t materialize. Morris Chang is a Taiwanese businessman and the founder, former chairman, and CEO of the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, the world’s first and largest silicon foundry.
