The EU -- Taiwan's biggest source of foreign direct investment -- will upgrade a trade and investment dialogue with Taipei that is scheduled for Thursday, from the technocratic level to the ministerial and director-general levels, EU trade commissioner Valdis Dombrovskis recently told the European Parliament.
