[TAIPEI] Taiwan stocks fell on Wednesday in line with regional bourses, but losses were limited on buying in local transport shares fuelled by oil prices near 7-year lows.

The electronics subindex sank 0.8 per cent, while the financials subindex lost 1.2 per cent.

Shares in Taiwan's two international carriers rose. China Airlines and EVA Airways were up 3.3 per cent and 2.7 per cent respectively.

The Taiwan dollar firmed T$0.209 (S$0.009) to T$32.828 per US dollar.
