Los Angeles, Aug. 16 (CNA) Overseas Taiwanese in the United States and Canada have assembled a commission in Chicago that aims to support Taiwan's bid to take part in regional trade blocs, including the proposed U.S.-led Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). The commission was officially launched on Aug. 15 with the help of the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association, the Taiwanese Chambers of Commerce of North America and the Taiwan Benevolent Association of America (TBAA). The commission hopes to highlight Taiwan's economic and trade strength in U.S. political circles through its members' resources and personal networks to help Taiwan gain participation in regional trade blocs like the TPP, said TBAA President John Wu, one of the commission's joint conveners. Shen Lyushun, Taiwan's top representative in the U.S., attended the commission's launch ceremony to show his appreciation for the efforts of overseas Taiwanese in North America.
