Taipei, Feb. 22 (CNA) President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) on Wednesday reiterated her administration's commitment to maintaining the status quo with China.
"Our goodwill will not change" but "we will not bow to pressure," Tsai said at a banquet for members of the diplomatic corps in Taiwan at the Grand Hotel in Taipei.
Since last May, Tsai said, Taiwan has been cooperating with the United States, Japan, the European Union, and Southeast and South Asian countries in the areas of trade, economics, and regional security.
She said Taiwan hoped to engage in substantive and meaningful participation in the international community and she thanked Taiwan's allies for their support in that regard.
As part of the government's efforts to revive the domestic economy, Tsai said, her administration is working to simplify the visa application procedure to attract more foreign visitors and talent.
