TAG: Correspondent Jeremy House reporting. The measure was signed by employees of the unofficial entities that maintain relations between the United States and Taiwan, a center for high-tech industry.

VERBATIM: The two governments say the U.S.-Taiwan Initiative on 21st Century Trade will strengthen commercial relations by improving customs, investment and other regulation. The U-S and Taiwan have no formal diplomatic ties, but maintain unofficial relations and have billions of dollars in annual trade.
