Taiwan welcomes China’s growing regional role
Taiwan sees no problem in China's growing economic influence in Central America but believes the region will keep recognizing Taipei.
Vice-president Vincent Siew acknowledged China's burgeoning economic role in Central America and said: "We would in no way interfere or oppose our allies' economic and trade relations with mainland China."
Siew, who was visiting Panama where he donated $25 million for a hospital, said he did not think that other Central American countries would follow the example of Costa Rica, which broke relations with Taipei in favor of Beijing.
