Taiwan was invited to attend an ICAO meeting in 2013 but has not been invited since. Many suspect that China moved to prevent Taiwan from being invited in order to further isolate Taiwan politically. Taiwan's Taoyuan International Airport is the fifth busiest cargo airport in the world and the 11th busiest international passenger airport in the world. (thediplomat.com) Más...
