ABSTRACT
The article reports on the criticism concerning the decision of Taiwan's legislative body to amend its laws to prohibit imports of some U.S. beef and beef products in the country. Accordingly, the Obama administration was disappointed with the decision which follows after months of efforts by the U.S. government to expand its market. Senator Blanche Lincoln states that he was disappointed with the decision effectively reversing the trade agreement reached between the two countries.
