(Taipei Times, By Lu Yi-hsuan and William Hetherington) The US government fully supports the President Tsai Ing-wen administration’s New Southbound Policy, describing it as in line with the US’ own policy direction in the region, a US Department of State source said. The source said that the US is happy to see Taiwan treating the policy as a long-term project, adding that it anticipates the two nations working together on such regional issues as the digital divide, medical training and fostering of a community mindset in the Asia-Pacific region.
