Moriarty made the comment on the sidelines of a conference on Taiwan’s elections organized in Washington D.C. by the Global Institute Taiwan (GTI) and Project 2049 Institute.

Asked whether the US government wants to see the issue of US pork and beef imports resolved overt the next 4 years, Moriarty said that the US hopes for progress though it is hard to predict what will happen.

"Pork and beef (imports), as we all know, has been a traditional issue that we think needs to be addressed," said the chairman of the AIT, a non-profit, private corporation largely funded by US State Department, representing US interests in Taiwan in the absence of official diplomatic ties.

Hung Chung-hsiu, director-general of the Council of Agriculture’s (COA) Department of International Affairs, the government agency-in-charge of the issue, told The China Post that Taiwan policy "remains unchanged."
