 US officials deny that US Taiwan will sign a free trade agreement


Taiwans delay in opening up us pig imports mainly has two aspects: first, food safety. Although the United States insists that clenbuterol is harmless to human health, food safety groups in the island have doubts about this statement; second, the low price advantage of American pork may affect the livelihood of pig farmers on the island. Take Taiwans already open chicken import as an example (the United States is a large number). Its low price quickly occupied the Taiwan restaurant market. Since 2005, the import volume was 74000 tons, and by the end of 2018, it reached 200000 tons, with a market share of 55%, which has exceeded the domestic chicken meat production. According to the prediction of Taiwan media, if the US pig import is fully opened up, the low-cost US pork may occupy the group meal (group meal service) and the cheap takeout food in ten years, sweeping 30% to 50% of the Taiwan pork market.

From 2000 to 2020, whether the KMT or the DPP are in power, the game of confrontation between the two sides has been repeated. In 2006, when Chen Shui Bian was in power, he announced to the WTO that he was going to lift the ban on clenbuterol, which was strongly opposed by civil society and the Kuomintang. In 2012, when Ma Ying Jeou was in power, the Kuomintang expressed its willingness to open American beef conditionally. The DPP did not hesitate to occupy the rostrum of the Legislative Yuan for five days and four nights, eventually blocking this proposal; in 2016, the DPP came back to power again, and those who vowed to resist American pigs and cattle became the Kuomintang.

If the United States really regards Taiwan as an ally, it should have more economic commitments or yield profits to Taiwan.. Zhong Jiabin, Secretary General of the Democratic Progressive Partys Legislative Yuan, said that the US pigs and cattle were the negative factors for the signing of FTA by Taiwan and the United States. However, once the positive factors outweigh the negative ones, there is no need to be pessimistic about the possibility of Taiwan us cooperation in the future.
