This article reports that for many years, the government of Taiwan sent out a delegation to negotiate purchases of U.S. soybeans, corn, wheat and other commodities for the following year.

One was reminded of those announcements the other day when China said it would impose export taxes on some of the textile and apparel it has been shipping to the United States and European Union.
