Taiwan and Singapore will sign a trade agreement called ASTEP on April 19. The official name for ASTEP is Agreement between Singapore and the Separate Customs Territory of Taiwan, Penghu, Kinmen and Matsu on Economic Partnership. One of the items to benefit from the agreement is Taiwan’s wine related products.
