Taiwan and Japan remain committed to signing an open skies agreement in the near future. See Nancy Liu, Timetable for Taiwan-Japan Aviation Pact to be Set Soon, Central News Agency, Oct. 27, 2011 (available here). The originally scheduled signing was canceled last month, and Taiwanese officials have since denied speculation that China is pressuring Japan to pull out of the agreement. Taiwan currently has open skies agreements with the U.S. and Singapore.
