Taiwan's US beef ban to be lifted


Taiwan's parliament has moved to end a battle over beef imports with the US, which is the country's second largest trading partner.

Six years ago Taiwan imposed a ban on US beef containing additives designed to enhance its leanness.

US beef went from more than 10% of Taiwan's total beef imports, to just 4%.

The ban will now be lifted, and there are hopes it will lead to a defrosting of trade relations between the two, as the BBC's Cindy Sui reports from Taipei.
