TAIPEI -- More than a dozen key European countries, including Germany, France, the Netherlands, Italy and Spain, on Tuesday launched their first joint campaign to promote investment between the EU and Taiwan in a signal of their warming ties with the democratic island amid escalating U.S.-China tensions.

The landmark investment forum, which involves 15 European countries and is organized by the European Economic and Trade Office, the de facto European Union embassy in Taiwan, comes as the continent also grows more skeptical of China.
