TAIPEI, Oct 15 (Reuters) - Taiwan stocks rose 0.8 percent on
Tuesday, paced by gains in heavyweights such as TSMC 
on expectations of an imminent deal to reopen the U.S.
government and avoid a possible debt default.   
    At around one hour into trade, the main TAIEX index 
had climbed to 8,337.65, joining other regional bourses in gains
and recovering from a loss in the previous session. 
    TSMC, the world's top contact chip maker and the most
heavily weighted stock, jumped 1 percent, boosting electronics
shares by 0.9 percent.
    Banking stocks were up 0.2 percent. China's top
insurance regulator is set to meet its Taiwan counterpart for
the first time this week for discussions of topics including
opening markets to each other wider.     
    The Taiwan dollar rose by T$0.135 to stand at
T$29.360 to the U.S. dollar.
