Lithuania to open trade representation in Taiwan in autumn

view original post

VILNIUS : Lithuania will open a trade representation office in Taiwan in the autumn of this year, the Lithuanian economy ministry said on Monday.

In January, Lithuania had said it planned to open the trade office in Taiwan by spring.

The Baltic country is under pressure from China which claims democratically ruled Taiwan as its own territory, to reverse a decision last year to allow the island to open a de-facto embassy in Vilnius under its own name.
