SUBJECT: TAIPEI RESPONDS TO APEC DEMARCHE

REF: STATE 121653

1. AIT delivered reftel demarche to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs
(MOFA) APEC Task Force Chief Wang Liang-yu on July 27. In her
response, Wang said Chinese Taipei (CT) had repeatedly expressed
full support for allowing markets, rather than governments, to
determine select technology standards.

2. Wang said Taipei has drafted IPR model guidelines and would meet
with the August 23 deadline.

3. Wang was unfamiliar with nominees for the Chairman of the
Counter Terrorism Task Force (CTTF). She said she would like to
learn more about the funding and key responsibilities of an APEC
Executive Director at the APEC Secretariat.

4. Wang expressed concern over China's opposition to Taipei's
participation in some APEC activities. She related how Taipei was
told by Philippine officials that it could not attend the June 2006
MANPAD discussions held in Manila.
