German Rivas wrote in Laprensagrafica.com: "’The advantage that Salvadoran exporters have taken of the free trade agreement with Taiwan is still 'timid' after 10 months of it having come into force,’ said the Taiwanese ambassador in the country, Carlos Liao.

‘The export of products in the first year of the agreement having come into force has been a little timid. There is still a great opportunity to intensify sales to the Taiwanese and other Asian markets,’ said Liao.

Under this agreement, the country can sell more than 5,688 products to Taiwan from the same number of tariff lines without paying fees."
