Welcome more interaction!

It's a good sign that Taiwan has good relationship with its neighbors. We should understand that China is not the only neighbor in which Taiwanese can invest or travel.

TAIPEI (AFP) - Taiwan and Vietnam have agreed to expand flights between them on the back of booming trade and tourism, the Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA) has said.

Under the new pact pending final approval from both governments, the seat capacity of Taiwanese airlines offering regular passenger flights to Ho Chi Minh City will nearly double to 11,000 a week from 6,010, the CAA said in a statement.

And the cargo flight capacity of Taiwan air carriers would be lifted from 600 tonnes a week to 1,000 tonnes, it said.

Taiwanese airlines would also be allowed to extend their flights from Vietnam to Europe while Vietnam Airlines would be allowed to extend its flights from Taipei to San Francisco or Los Angeles, it said.

Trade between the two sides more than doubled to 4.7 billion US dollars in 2005, up from 2.1 billion dollars in 2000.
