Taipei: Taiwan may approach the World Trade Organization (WTO) against China after the communist state curbed the import of more Taiwanese food and drink products from the island nation.
China alleged that Taiwan’s “political manipulation” was the reason for the move.
Taiwanese Prime Minister Su Tseng-chang has accused China of using administrative means to “interfere” in normal trade in violation of WTO standards.
“The government will do its best to communicate with relevant Chinese departments on the matter. In case of non-compliance with relevant WTO standards, we will also follow the appropriate channels to file a complaint,” Su Tseng-chang told media on Saturday.
Over the past two years, Taiwan has accused China of waging a pressure campaign by imposing import bans on several agricultural and aquatic products.
According to a report by Reuters news agency, China’s latest bans on Taiwanese imports include more fish products, including squid, as well as some beers and liquors. China has accused Taiwanese companies of not properly filling out relevant documents to justify the bans.
