MOFA releases Treaties between the Republic of China (Taiwan) and Foreign States Volume 22
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) published Treaties Volume 22 in December 2019. Through publication of the hard copy, MOFA hopes to enhance the public's understanding of Taiwan's diplomatic work for reference and use. Treaties Volume 22 is composed of 91 agreements signed with other countries and international organizations from 2016 to 2017. For instance, Taiwan signed separate agreements concerning cooperation on immigration affairs and human trafficking prevention with four countries: the Marshall Islands, Palau, Panama, and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. These accords protect human dignity and assure freedom of movement. Moreover, in conjunction with diplomatic ally the Kingdom of Eswatini, Taiwan is implementing the Maternal and Infant Health Care Improvement Project, which promotes the health rights of women and children. President Tsai Ing-wen also signed two instruments of accession to international human rights conventions: the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and the United Nations Convention on Persons with Disabilities. Overall, the documents of the past two years show that the focus of Taiwan and the international has been on trading, investment, and mutual legal assistance.
The agreements included in Treaties Volume 22 can be found individually  on the MOFA website at http://no06.mofa.gov.tw/mofatreatys/IndexE.aspx. The collection itself can be purchased from government publication booksellers. The Ministry of Justice will also upload each separate agreement to the Laws and Regulations Database of the Republic of China (Taiwan) at https://law.moj.gov.tw/Eng/Index.aspx.
