Secretary general of NPB Kunio Shimoda returned to Japan today after attending an Asia Series Steering Committee meeting in Korea. Taiwan provided the committee with a plan for holding an Asia Series in Taiwan in November this year. Japan will decide whether or not it can participate during an executive committee meeting on the 20th.
Taiwan has been pushing to host the Asia Series since 2009.
UPDATE 1/11 @ 1:03pm JST - if Japan accepts the proposal, another meeting will be held on 3/18 involving the commissioners of all four leagues that will be involved (Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and China).
