TAIPEI Dec 13 Taiwan's finance ministry will suspend issuance of three-year government bonds next year as fewer bonds mature in 2017, sources with direct knowledge of the matter said on Tuesday.
The move came after the ministry held a meeting with traders earlier in the day to assess bond demand for 2017.
Taiwan has issued government bonds totaling T$563.5 billion ($17.78 billion) this year, the lowest level in years. (Reporting by Emily Chan; Writing by Faith Hung; Editing by Eric Meijer)
