The State Department has decided to approve a possible Foreign Military Sale (FMS) to Taiwan. As China does not want Taiwan to be recognised as a country, the state is formulated as “the Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office in the United States”. The “Representation” demands Contractor Technical Assistance and related equipment for an estimated cost of $95 million. Today, the Defence Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) delivered the required certification notifying Congress of this possible sale.



The Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office in the United States (TECRO) has requested to buy Contractor Technical Assistance support consisting of training, planning, fielding, deployment, operation, maintenance, and sustainment of the Patriot Air Defense System, associated equipment, and logistics support elements; as well as Patriot Ground Support Equipment, spare parts, and consumables as required in support of Technical Assistance activities. The total estimated program cost is $95 million.
