Taiwanese media are reporting that the US Trade Representative (USTR) representing the US is Taiwanese-American, and Taiwan is very welcoming to the US and Taiwan in the process of negotiating trade negotiations despite the opposition of China.

The main character of the topic is Katherine Ty, USTR representative. He was born in the United States, but his parents are from Taiwan. He was born in Connecticut, USA and raised in Washington, DC. He is Taiwanese American.

After that, he became the representative of the US USTR and is negotiating trade with his hometown of Taiwan.

In a statement on the 10th (local time), the USTR issued a statement saying, “In the next few weeks, President Tai will hold a video conference with Taiwanese Trade Minister John Deng, and in the next few weeks, the 11th Framework Agreement on Trade and Investment (TIFA) will be signed under the auspices of the American Taiwan Association and the Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office in the United States. We decided to hold a meeting,” he said.

TIFA is a trade conference that began in 1994 between the United States and Taiwan. It was last suspended in 2016 due to backlash from China.

The talks between the two countries are likely to shake up China’s ‘one China’ principle, which has claimed Taiwan is part of its territory, and China’s backlash is expected.

A Taiwanese-American representative of the United States will attend such a meeting. Born to Taiwanese parents, Tai speaks fluent Chinese.

I also have experience living in China. He taught English to Chinese students for two years at Zhongshan University, a prestigious university in China, from 1996 to 1998.

When he became the first female USTR representative of color, the US Zoya was buzzing.

After graduating from Yale University and Harvard Law School, he worked at a well-known law firm before entering the USTR and dealing with trade with China.

Prior to the appointment of USTR representative, ten Democrats wrote to President Joe Biden and strongly recommended him as “a unique ability to negotiate and advance priorities with both friendly and hostile negotiators.”

He was nominated for the USTR representative because he was of Chinese descent. China is currently the most controversial country with the United States. America needed an expert who knew China best, and he was chosen. It’s the American version of this.

Taiwan has recently emerged as the center of the US-China conflict. China insists that Taiwan is part of China, and the US needs to improve relations with Taiwan to keep China in check. Taiwan is becoming a ‘hot potato’ between the US and China.

At such a sensitive time, he is starting trade negotiations with Taiwan.

He worked for the USTR from 2007 to 2014, where he was in charge of the US-China trade dispute. He also has a lot of experience in successfully suing China’s trade practices with the World Trade Organization (WTO). In the process, he is a hardliner in the masses to the extent that he has been prosecuted by China for luring other countries to the “American side”.
