New Delhi, Oct 9 (PTI) India and Taiwan should finalise the proposed free trade agreement (FTA) at the earliest as it will remove all barriers to trade and investment and help create a secure and resilient supply chain, Taipei's de-facto Ambassador Baushuan Ger said.

The envoy said Taiwan is willing to share its expertise with India in critical sectors such as semiconductors, 5G, information security and artificial intelligence, and that his country can be an "excellent" partner in New Delhi's quest for becoming a hub for manufacturing of cutting-edge electronics.

"The signing of the FTA will further remove all trade and investment barriers and lead to a jump in bilateral trade and investment," he told PTI.
