"The two sides have continued to negotiate the agreement on double taxation avoidance and some progress has been made," said Chang Jen-joe, secretary-general of the Association of East Asian Relations, which is responsible for dealing with ties with Japan in the absence of bilateral diplomatic relations.

He was responding to questions on the issue of signing a double taxation avoidance agreement with Japan at a news briefing.

Chang said there has been some "positive development," but he declined to divulge details.

Taiwan and Japan have been in talks on such a deal for about two years, he said, adding that the ministry will make an announcement when the details are finalized.
