Saturday’s Asahi took up remarks made at the Diet on Friday by Prime Minister Kishida on the official applications for CPTPP membership filed by Taiwan and China. With regard to Taiwan’s wish to join the 11-member free trade framework, Kishida said: “We welcome it because Taiwan is an extremely important partner with which we share the same values and close economic bonds.” On the Chinese bid, however, the premier said: “It is necessary to carefully discern whether Beijing is ready to fully comply with the TPP’s high standard of trade liberalization.”
